Definitely more powerful than just image manifest + packages.

With some scripting it is possible to list
recipes which produce binaries to images, except for static linking and
header-only recipes but I hope these cought via some other way.
Yeah, that "except" part is something that should be accounted for.

The thing is, I don't see how recipes make any difference between a
build-time dependency such as a build tool, or a statically linked
library, so that some additional information should be input somewhere;
failing to provide that, since I don't feel like finding static library
symbols in binaries to perform a discovery, I just tell my clients to
distribute everything except their proprietary bits...
