For a while now the X components have been unbundled and can be installed

I wonder why they were unbundled. It has been suggested here before that it
would be useful to bundle the typical tiny X tools with the default X
installation, just to avoid such trouble.
Because not everybody has the same needs. Before the unbundling, I had
to install the entirety of X just to be able to run makedepend;
several megabytes of unused stuff just for a single, 23k executable.
I understand. But here we speak of the opposite situation. A number of tools (10, 20?) most of which are only a few K. By installing ~1MB total many users looking for standard tools would not have to search or ask.
