st: Dependencies in Stata ado-packages

Is there any mechanism for dealing with the situation where one
user-written package depends on another? 

If no mechanism, is there a convention? 

More concretely: I have a package which uses mm_expand() from moremata.
Is there a way of making -net install mypackage- check for the presence
of moremata and install it if it is missing? If not, is there a standard
way to bring it to the user's attention?
