But that's true for me for thousands of packages I don't use, and
whether or not someone uses them doesn't change that. I agree that this
is a scaling problem we have (it's particular evident when installing
packages into a minimal cloud image or a docker container!), but I
don't think "don't scale, then!" is the answer.
