It's always good to fix this kind of thing early, as doing so makes it
possible to find even sooner the real problems that will otherwise remain
hidden by mickey mouse stuff like bad package dependencies. Finding
problems before a release is cut is way cheaper (even for open source
volunteers) than discovering them once the code is in the wild.
