ok, devel test boxes and tor servers are having completely different
requirements. E.g. the devel box needs gcc, editors, perhaps cups and
a complete networking.

The tor server does not need these programs (which add complexity and
additional potential points of failures). tor server and clients should 
not have a complete networking (e.g. no DNS, fake hostname) to increase
anonymity.

Current packaging (with split lsb and initng initmethod) satisfies both
needs: Those who want to use tor on a devel test box can install the bloaty
lsb subpackage, while those who want to use it productivily (whatever that
means for "tor") can install the minit/ining subpackages with minimal deps.
