Ordinarily, package splits such as this one would ALSO incorporate
modifications to the package requirements list, so that this sort of
thing doesn't happen.
That is, the "slimmed down" cygutils package would 'require:' the
cygutils-extra and cygutils-x11 packages, so that anybody who previously
had the "old, fat" cygutils package installed would automatically get
the two new packages, as part of the upgrade -- and would so no visible
changes in their installation.
However, the purpose of this package split was specifically to *cut
down* on the default installation footprint of cygutils -- because
several elements in the 'Base' category require cygutils (specifically,
they required mkshortcut, readshortcut, and cygstart). Thus, in THIS
case, we could NOT do the "normal" thing in manipulating the

There just wasn't any better solution available.
