way easier - dependecies

it's not always obvious why some package is installed
many times packages get installed by package errors
many times packages are no longer used because the
consumer switched to a different library

without that protection any "what is that, i don't need it"
and try to remove it brings the danger to ruin the setup

the protections lead to - oh, i don't need it but the system does
