I agree with you that the default should probably be to include the
dependency, however I've been using acroread8 without the html support
and it seems to work fine, both in the browser and standalone. Of course
it fails when I try to use the help features. I'm sure that whatever you
decide will be fine.

Yeah, having a separate port for just that library would be awesome, but
since I'm not in a position to do that work, I won't comment further. :)
