Well it'd need to depend really. eject is used when it's found in fstab
as far as I can see.
What actually depends on bin/exo-* existing? I don't think any of the exo
library does that I can see. So we'd end up with xfce4-panel (and
probably most of the stuff that depends on the library) depending on
exo-utils too. That sounds sane.
Oh interesting. xdg-utils would need to be updated to suggest exo-utils
then. We'd have to coordinate that.
Some of the bits wouldn't depend on -utils. Shouldn't be too hard to
work out which. So yeah sounds good.
I can do bits of this but probably not much til Sunday.
