So? We have had plenty of cases of dependencies that cannot be disabled 
individually, some of them for years:
- xcb-composite for xcb_screen,
- xproto and xcb-keysyms for xcb_window and globalhotkeys,
- xcb-randr for panoramix,
- xcb-xv for xcb_xv,
- xcb-shm for xcb_xv and xcb,
- libtar for skins2,
- valgrind?
