Fedora can force Beagle on me anytime they want - seriously why are you
people complaining about this, it's a simple case of weighting in the
net benefits of bringing in a new dependency vs. the pain for a relative
few users who'll want to remove a core application like evolution.

Do we need to start removing functionality just to keep a few people
happy, I certainly hope not - and if the dependencies can be minimized
without removing functionality then why spend time mailing the list,
when a bugreport would be the correct answer.
