is it really necessary that vlc-nox *Depends:* on libavc1394-0 and
libraw1394-11? My laptop doesn't even have a firewire port, I'm sure
vlc can operate without these libraries? And yes, space is not always
cheap, think embedded devices or running off a USB stick or SD card...
The same is probably true of other libraries, e.g. do I need to have the
libdvd* and libdvb* installed if I have neither of these devices? I'd
wish vlc dependencies were more graded...
THANKS FOR CONSIDERING THIS WISH!
