I totally agree. And although we don't want to fall into
"dependency hell", one has to consider we are trying provide
a layer of compatibilty for an OS that is known for the same.
So I think selective dependencies, as Shachar mentions, are
I don't mind a dependecy on FAM, but I could be biased, as I
already installed it for the associated KDE functionality.
If inserted as a conditional dependency, the fallback position
if it is not present is no worse than the current position.
Just my two centi-dollars.
