It would be useful to be able to use BiocManager to install
the Depends/Imports/Suggests of a source package not on Bioconductor, e.g.:

BiocManager::install("Bioconductor/BiocWorkshops")  #works but only if all
Depends/Imports are already installed


BiocManager::install_deps("Bioconductor/BiocWorkshops")  #to avoid any
change to BiocManager::install()
BiocManager::install("Bioconductor/BiocWorkshops")  #recommends the above
if not all deps are available

Also from a local package, e.g.:

BiocManager::install("mypackage_0.1.tar.gz")  # or,

BiocManager::install_deps("mypackage_0.1.tar.gz")  # or,
