I do this via a PS script and install dynamic applications step. Each collection that deploys applications has a variable on it that sets a 'BaseApp' variable with the application name, the script gets all the collection variables that are assigned to the machine and orders them as 01, 02, 03 etc and it works perfectly. Would it be great to have this built in? Yes but its very easily done without it.
I think what he is referring to is install this application only if this other application is installed. For example the flash plugin NPAPI is only required if a browser that uses it is installed.

This is available as the application groups feature in the 1905 technical preview. We’d love it if you installed it and gave us your feedback.
I was thinking the same thing, you just work backwards with whatever will be the last step having a dependency on the step that needs to occur before it. It still amazes me how many people don't understand the concept. While this would be a nice addition I don't think that it is really needed.
