Extra 277MB of junk, really?  Is stuff like ODBC or mysql really useful for
playing video files?

I'm not sure what codecs I actually need (I don't know the tangle of
mpeg/etc subformats), thus I don't know whether sticking to just -good would
be acceptable, but at least a hard direct dependency comes via
libfarstream-0.2-5 that would remove some programs I do use.
