Karl,
I'm a little confused by the above statement.  Are you agreeing with
Josh, or disagreeing?  In other words, are you in favor of the tedium
because it gives the ability to check for hidden dependencies?

This sounds like what Josh was suggesting in one way, but I can't be
sure if you're saying that you like his idea or rather the idea of
making smaller, separate repositories.  Just wondering.

I agree, although this really is an upstream problem I think.  If they
aren't even properly documenting what libraries their application
depends on, I see that as a bigger problem we shouldn't necessarily try
to fix for them.  I understand that this does happen in the real world,
however. :-)
