The metacello configuration was done by Dale based on the dependencies that
the development team use to build complete development images and one-click
images, all of which include the OB tools.

The OB tools—along with everything else non-essential—are purposely
separated out into their own packages specifically so that they don't need
to be loaded. My suggestion was always that the OB tools be loaded *if* you
have Omnibrowser, but as far as I know Metacello still doesn't support that
kind of rule.

There's no reason we can't ensure that Metacello makes it easy to load
subsets that people want—someone just has to do it.
