Not always. The exception is when a library can have zero dependencies,
which is very valuable for low level libraries. For example, in LEAF I need
a piece of mp11, but I've copied that piece over in LEAF so there's no
dependency on anything.

If you have one dependency, you might as well have 2 or 3.
