I don't object to this, but just to satisfy my curiosity, what are the
effects of removing, say, zlib or readline from the system profile?
It'd be very difficult if not impossible to construct a system without
these. The only effect I've noticed from changes like these are that
sometimes the packages will be depcleaned from stage3 tarballs if
nothing has them in RDEPEND.

Are there any other cases?

Matt
