In principle I'd rather go for a one-size-fits-all solution to
maximize simplicity, but I guess there will be many use cases where a
more trimmed down set of dependencies makes more sense.

Perhaps, as suggested by Bertrand, we should also come up with some
class loading trickery along such module boundaries to better handle
conflicting dependencies etc. Sounds scary though...
