Sorry, no I haven't, not at all since F9 (and not much before that) was
released.  I do get frustrated sometimes by what gets pulled in when
trying to build a minimal box (like a firewall or a simple NFS server).

Why is "ed" still mandatory in core?  Does anything (or anybody)
actually use it?

I see a few other things that don't really seem core to me (file,
hdparm, prelink, dhclient); it isn't that I don't use them, but I don't
necessarily see why they should be mandatory.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
