Check if these packages currently in extra  have a (make)depends on
other packages from extra and so on. If these packages depends on too
many packages from extra, we might be better doing an exception and
keep them in extra. Otherwise we should try to move them to core.

The makedepends is to build plugins. It was brought up on the ML
before and no-one objected. I maintain xmms in community so I could
easily bring it back in extra. With a usage of 16.34 %, I would say it
has a place in extra.
