Should xorg-server be specified as a runtime dependency of gitk?
The X server is no hard requirement. Consider:
$ DISPLAY=my_linux_box:0 gitk&
True. But would the benefit (helping new users) outweigh the cost
(installing xorg-server for some users that don't actually require it)?
Nobody that doesn't need or want it has to install the X-Server. If
one uses gitk though, one has now moved into the category of "need/want
the X-Server" if one wasn't already in that category. ;-)
