Tony: you seem to have missed the point of packaging and shared libraries.

If something relies upon ChangeFSI (i.e. has a dependency on it), then the ChangeFSI package (which is separate) is also install - once, and once only (unless of course there's a later update) at the same time as your graphics app was installed. Likewise shared libraries - with the criticial word here being _shared_ - they are one resource used by everyone, and therefore only need to be installed once.

There's no requirement to dial up to the internet automatically (and I would discourage this feature in any case).
