That depends. In one scenario, you are targeting an embedded device 
where space is paramount. Being able to split off everything not 
absolutely needed on such a system is really important. On the other 
hand, I've always liked having a bit more tooling present on systems 
that can handle it. The ability to use debugging tools or call an 
application directly can save some work in getting that tool present. 
Also, it is outright hell if you maintain a program. You will get a fair 
share of issues in your issue tracker which all boils down to 
"Issue-creator had not installed subpackage X".
