This shouldn't be looked at as a 'just for Fedora' thing.  Addition of
external dependencies to release set modules is subject to community
approval and we do have precedent of not allowing hard dependencies on
modules that maintainers would have otherwise used.  It only makes
sense because we don't want an explosion of external dependencies. 
Given Matthias objection, it is something we'll have to push for
general consensus on.
