Versioning in OSX libraries and frameworks works.  They're really very  

Basically, it's a choice of installing one package or a bunch of extra  
dependencies.  And how well they are kept up to date.  And...

... being able to use the dependencies on their own.  Which really  
depends on how they are packaged.  Usually an all-in-one will bundle  
just the bare necessities for the main application.  Even external  
dependencies (framework or otherwise) don't have to include all the  
extra bits (and a framework is mainly a library, so extra utilities  
are often left out).  That said, I do include all the extra utilities  
within my framework builds.
