Some packages (Things like python) also have dependencies on things like the gnome libraries or X11 libraries - if the packages were split then this could improve the situation.
Some known issues in this area are:
- splitting tk bindings out of the core python package
- splitting X apps out of the core groff package
- splitting glib out of the gnome-base-libs package
Those are all from spec files in the jds spec-files repo, so it
should be possible for someone from OI to work with the folks on
desktop-discuss at opensolaris.org to make it happen for everyone.
