There's prolly a 10 line function the developer didn't want to write. I've seen some case where it takes more code to link to other packages than just write what's needed. Drives me crazy to have to install apps that have "nothing" to do with the app I really need...

Can someone enlighten me as to why the GIMP package would require
libsmbclient? This strikes me as the very height of software bloat
absurdity. Maybe I'm missing something.
