This package is "Priority: optional", and therefore not installed by

On my system it pulled in more than 20MB of dependencies. That's a lot
to push onto every debian system.

Is 20MB really a lot?  That seems like essentially nothing to me
nowadays.  I'm in the middle of a 2.2GB upgrade right now.


I just installed alpine as my plain text email client and that fits in less than 8MB of dependencies altogether.

The checkrestart utility weighing 20MB can probably be fixed.
