I have always checked these in my reviews; I list out the dependencies
so that others who happen to peruse the reviews can perhaps spot
anything that I miss.  It's caught problems in the past.

Of course, as others have pointed out, it's tough to define "sane".  I
generally know a bogus provide when I see one, but I don't think I
could list out all of the criteria.
