Really?  That's the first I've heard of any such dependency here.  Is it
a build time dependency or is it just something that's required to make
the code actually spring into life?  It looks like it's the latter but
you're saying there's an actual dependency.

There's also more than that, there's also at least Tero submitting some
other stuff separately (and his stuff won't play with DT...) and I think
Peter also.  It really fees like there's a bunch of people working on
different things without talking to each other here.

Unless there's a compile time dependency I don't think we need to
refactor anything here, what I'm seeing at the minute looks OK from a
merge point of view except that there appears to be a lack of
coordination between the various serieses.
