I think that doing this would likely create dependency-hell for the
person utilizing the tool - whereas the current system works very
well, if extremely manually. That it works is, of course, the most
In fact, it's so simple that it works so solidly that it's a simple
thing to automate, excepting the formatting, which is fairly
willy-nilly. I think keeping it that way (simple - not willy-nilly) is
highly desirable, and I think that the sort of dependency-checking
that starts mucking with optional stuff and concerning itself with
system packages is not something I care to try to deal with.
