Oops, I should have read more carefully. If I'm affected by a hard
dependency, that IMO could be and should be an optional dependency, I
build an empty dummy package to fulfil the dependency. Some dependencies
are annoying. I didn't follow the discussion and in this case I don't
care. Maybe there are reasons to make it a hard dependency.
