Right now my packages: the recipes are working, but the helper skeleton
script that create dependencies gets them from DESCRIPTION and if lower
limits for version are not there it cannot infer them.

Package A depends on package B. Versions 1.0.0 of both packages work well
together. In version 1.2.0 package B changes something that A uses, so A
adapts to this change in 1.2.0, if this is not reflected in the DESCRIPTION
a pin on B version >=1.2.0 the corresponding bioconda packages could not
fit well together (imagine someone with B version 1.0.0 and A version
Bioconda developers are reasoning on a way to annotate bioc version, this
should fix the issue without any work needed on single packages versions.
