So, for each of the output files, what you will see is the recursive

Here's some pre-coffee comments. :)
The above pull in /bin/sh, and therefore I think the jump here (there
are a bunch more 17s) is the cluster of packages around "glibc with
bash"). And the 18s are one step up -- packages which require that but
nothing else. It's kind of encouraging to see that there are a lot of
those. At the 19s, though, things start to explode.
Might it be interesting to pick this as a sort of line in the sand;
what does the list look like if we subtract these 101 packages from all
of the rest?
(Not to say that we shouldn't look for wins in the systemd dep tree
too, but maybe it's a way to help split the problem?)
/me goes to get coffee...
