But that is a project decision. The case for pharo, they could simply
choose to include the packages to load more packages in the core image
and walk ahead. Isn't necessarily a problem to not have a pristine
only kernel image. At least in my production servers I can have
*those* packages installed, the same way that a minimal Debian server
must have apt-get/aptitude installed in order to be *real* useful.
In this internet age, is very valuable to download everything with
just a command in a remote server. If that means to have some more
packages in the core image, that is ok with me.
