No, of cause not - I am worried about the package's working principles
and their reflection on packaging.

This time it's a more or less unimportant language called ruby adding
5MB, next time it's fortran adding another 5MB, sometime in future it
could be java adding 20MB and at some point in future could be C# adding
50 MB. 

All of them. as a side-effects, pulling in packages an individual user
has no use for, and which a add additional security risks.

So all this more or less a "beware the beginnings/think twice" concern.
