But, it would be nice to be able to build tahoe in such a way that it
has minimal dependencies, and different names, so one can have a
tahoe-server package that doesn't have the dependencies.  (In my case the
smallest machine is a 500 MHz geode with 512MB ram, so it's pretty beefy
compared to a NAS/etc, so I was thinking security more than bloat.)
