As a simple observer of this thread, and one that doesn't care
either way, I think you should install the two packages and run
the test suite and see exactly what it tests, and see if the test
is even relevant before you start discussing if the packages should
be added.

It may be that you install the packages but the tests turn out
to be something trivial.
