You cannot have a slay-every-problem-with-one-command package that suits
user's needs. Users need to understand that what libraries are for, and
that reusing libraries is a good thing, and that re-using PCRE for other
applications may save them hassle in the future.

Again, I think it could be useful if it was not PCRE, though, at the
moment, I'd prefer Cornelius' approach of offering a leafnode package
and a leafnode+pcre package. "If you don't know which to choose, get
leafnode+pcre". However, packagers should be obliged to distribute PCRE
separately, for obvious reasons.
