If that's all it is, then there is no need for special treatment.  It's a
simple rule: if your script does a chown, include in its
dependences, that's all.

I thought it was more like "something is essential to running all scripts,
so there had better be a dependence there whether the author included it
or not".  Can't think of any that would need it, though...
