I quite like this idea. fwiw, debian just moved gcrypt from /usr/lib
into /lib, so that it can be used as a dependency for critical code
during boot (and during recovery when /usr isn't mounted.
So i'm not concerned about the extra dependency for debian, anyway.
I also want to add my voice to the chorus of folks saying "good work!"
I'm happy to see this get merged.
