My bad, opera is in community now :)

mtr package is in community, not mtr-tiny, which is a version of mtr
without gtk (and its dependency)

About awesome and cairo-xcb, i hope Jan, will accept to add
--enable-xcb in configure in cairo extra package to enable xcb

There may be reasons to include or not these packages that I did not
see. In this case I would abstain.
