You could implement one or two functions, similar to
register_activation_hook(), which would be called like this:

     'foo-plugin' => '1.0'
     'another_plugin' => '3.3'

     'foo-plugin' => '1.0'
     'another_plugin' => '3.3'

Basically, what those functions do is check all deps and add the plugins
that are not already installed to a donwload queue. After that, the user is
asked if he wants to install them.

This shouldn't be too hard because WP already has automatic plugin

Of course, the devil is in the details.
