Hi Tristan,

As Kenneth responded to your post [1] a couple of months ago, there is room
for improvement wrt to the handling of runtime_dependencies. We will
continue to work on that issue, and we may write an EEP for collecting
community input; although, I won't promise the latter. In any case, we
appreciate your input and will consider it, regardless of an EEP.
