C'mon, how big can they be?

Also, if you put a switch into A to toggle
between B and C mode, it doesn't count as an
"orphan package" just because it isn't selected
by default!

Even in vanilla Emacs, there are tons of stuff
I never use and never will use, and that never
bothered me at all.

Stuff that are unused are only annoying if it
is visible!
