Nothing in the dep list looks horrible to me personally (as my used apps
have pulled most of those in already).

But I'd really hate to see dwm start to suffer from the same type of "must
install plan9" dependencies that wmii had. It really doesn't matter how
small/compact your window manager is if you have to install a 20MB+ set of
utilities to use it. And I'm worried that XCB would end up adding the same
to dwm without providing much more benefit.
