Just FYI. I put this package in the book, and my preference is that
dependencies are listed one per line, as it makes them easier to
distinguish. Just personal preference, but keep in mind that going
behind one editor and changing his work simply for a different
aesthetic look to the XML is, well, um, ...

Just out of curiosity, why did you make it recommended? It was perfectly
obvious the way it was in the optional section.

I've always included information about the optionally installed
programs as this puts it in the index. So if someone does build
the program, it won't be found in the index, which could be
confusing. It should probably be put back. And I hope it makes
sense what I'm saying.
