As I've gone back and reviewed this thread, it seems that sentiment seems to
be leaning in favor of dropping the deps tarballs from our distribution.
I'm inclined to follow that path, and will make the needed changes to our
distribution scripts to remove them. If you have objections, please make
them known.

(Note: this would only be in preparation for the 1.7 release. 1.6.x will
continue to ship with the deps tarballs.)
