I agree that the idea of only pulling down expectations that you would
actually need sounds great -- in fact we did try to think of ways of
how this could be accomplished. So far, no great proposal
materialized, but it doesn't mean the door of opportunity closes at
this commit. I would think of this as more of a two-step solution:

Step 1: Align Chromium port with the rest of the WebKit world and
diminish the cost/pain of WebKit gardening.
Step 2: Come up with a better way to track dependencies and optional
components in WebKit.
Step 3: Profit.
