Actually, it's like that at the moment and it always will be like that.
I mean you will always have some choices that you can or not adjust to 
your needs.

The difference is that "optional options" are mentioned in README, 
whereas "required options" are placed in info - you put the optional 
deps in *.info, which gives the whole thing better structure.

But it is always *YOU* who has to make the choice, the difference is how 
the information about possible dependencies is given to you.

Best regards,
