Agreed it's not the biggest issue in the world. I've had official
packages break as somewhere down the tree dependency X was removed.

To my earlier question - "has it been discussed before" a clear "no,
it hasn't" would have been great.
A "newcomers are not the best people to start such threads" would also suffice.
