we are nearing release-candidate phase.

From what I recall, we (or rather the olpc team) did quite a bit of
dependency pruning back in the F7 timeframe to get the olpc image as
small as it it. Realistically, you'll have to keep fighting this by
filing bugs and pointing out package split candidates, since these deps
have the tendency to grow back.

Right. Live CD's tend to keep things somewhat in check but this is a ongoing process and constant struggle.
