Hmm... very good point, from a man that "oughta" know. =:^)

So while this one removal from @system isn't much, reducing @system over 
time both reduces the effective footprint of the problem, and encourages 
explicit dependencies in a way that both cuts down on the need for 
special @system treatment in the first place, and encourages further 
reductions to the system set.

The end result of that process sounds like something I can live with. =:^)

Thanks.
