I too would prefer to see the base as clean as possible
I'd like to support Andreas here, on general assumption that 50
megs of supporting packages is nothing if the tool (language)
itself is appropriate for the job and if the tools has a fairly
wide support. Recognized, supported and stable is what lisp seemsI thought Dragonfly was diverging from a bloated base. perl was
removed from the base system, but adding a 50 meg dep is nothing?
like to me.
Nobody said anything about adding stuff to base. I think a package
manager even should be implemented as a self-bootstrapping package.
Otherwise it's really hard to update the package manager itself on
release branches etc.
