Ah so it does.

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.
