the pain would be miniscule. it would result in a trivial compile
error which would take only a couple of minutes to fix. To me
this is a small price to pay to address that the problem with
gratuitous dependency extension. I realize you (and others)
don't see this is a problem - we just have to agree to disagree on this.
