if it wasn't for implicit system dependencies, we'd have significant bloat in 
the tree and circular deps out the wazoo

there's absolutely no reason every package should depend on sh, find, gawk, ls, 
sed, grep, make, gcc, libc, as/ld

i wouldn't mind seeing gzip/bzip2/xz being auto calculated from SRC_URI ... 
though it would make a system without any of those tricky to bootstrap, so 
we'd have to pick at least one
