I actually agree with Joss, here, sorry. And going back to the 80ies
isn't really what most people want. Dependencies are necessary to
suit the needs for various setups like servers, desktops, tablets,
notebooks and so on.

Come on, no need to be huffy here. Joss really has a point. I guess
he could have said it more politely, but I think a bit of schadenfreude
from his side isn't too bad.

At least you get the idea now why people are arguing over this issue.
Just imagine now something like this happens to a home NFS server
in a company department with 1200 users. They'd be flooding the IT
hotline in no time and yes, I have experienced that.
