I agree. Easy to add, difficult to remove.

I cannot personally cover all the hosts being used and need to rely on 
feedback in the form of documentation updates.

I am starting to think the RSB needs to learn more about hosts to help 
here. I am thinking of adding support so a package can specify something 
that has to be present and per hosts support translates that to a 
specific host set of packages or commands that are needed. Maybe then I 
can receive patches for those files and capture the information new 
users need.
