I doubt it really makes a difference.  All the 'required' packages are going
to be supported regardless of their ranking in "Popularity Contest", but it
would make for a more useful list of they just left the required packages
off it.

Except... some required packages can be admired, e.g. gcc + c++
Or the kernel.
