And don't limit my choice in what or what not to include in my system!  For my
purposes, the 20.6 MB for perl and python *do* make a difference, therefore I
won't use them.  And if you make gnome dependant on those languages, then I
won't use Gnome either.  Heading down to Fry's to pick up a 30GB hard drive is
not an option here, and besides, that should never be an argument or we will
end up going the same direction as Microsoft.  Is that precise enough for you?
