I'd like to support Andreas here, on general assumption that 50

 like to me.
I thought Dragonfly was diverging from a bloated base. perl was 
removed from the base system, but adding a 50 meg dep is nothing?
I too would prefer to see the base as clean as possible
Nobody said anything about adding stuff to base.  I think a package 
manager even should be implemented as a self-bootstrapping package. 
Otherwise it's really hard to update the package manager itself on 
release branches etc.
