More strange F9 dependencies



	I have no PDA, nor expect ever to, much less hardware to connect 
it to a PC.

	When I was working, and literally running my life on rails, its 
ancestors, then called organizers, were fine things; I had a whole series 
of them. 

	Those who want or need them are welcome to them; strength to 
their arms. Theirs, not mine.  To an old retired fart without a schedule, 
a PDA or even a fancy phone is a dispensable expense, and thus cruft at 
best, if not a security liability. So I tried to cut.

Is this ok [y/N]: n
Exiting on user Command

	Some of those dependencies certainly make sense, and others look 
likely to. Some of them. I grant that.

	Some make mud seem clear. I don't understand, despite googling, 
what gvfs is or does. I know only that it too threatened to take a long 
list of indispensable apps with it if removed -- and that the gnome 
system monitor always shows some half dozen of its creatures, sleeping.

	But what of nautilus? It would be fine for bluez to depend on it; 
but why should it depend on bluez?? Is someone going to tell me that 
pango uses bluez, with or without hardware? And then sneer down his nose 
that I'm welcome to write new code??

	What ever became of linux being tailorable??
