Thanks for the response, couple things come to mind. First, how many
things actually make use of those perl/python scripts? If the number is
small they should probably be OPTIONS that default to off, or slave
ports as Thomas suggested.
Meanwhile, I still don't understand why qbittorrent needs a pkgdep on
perl when it cannot use perl in any way, and will not be affected in any
way if perl is updated, or disappears entirely. The glib dependency is 6
layers deep from qbittorrent, isn't this just a little silly?
... and that's just a little bit of history repeating.
