nautilus does not require the SMB backend to work, however
we do want it installed by default (even on upgrade).

If (as it does now) that means some people have to 
keep it installed even though they don't want it,
then too bad; it's simply more important to get it
installed by default.

If someone fixes it so there's no tradeoff (we can 
get it by default, *and* you can uninstall it), 
then fantastic; of course nobody will object.

A "requires(missingok)" sounds fine to me, but 
the anaconda guys are the ones whose opinion
