All valid points. But if it was such a big concern, then why was Apple
happy to go with it. Maybe the concern is not so bad. As for bigger apps
(due to bundled dependencies).... That might have been a concern years
back, but nobody seems to care now about large apps. Hell, even websites
are now 5+MB per page downloads (massive JavaScript libraries, huge
high-res images etc). View a few pages and you have downloaded some 50MB

Because here Apple simply enforced it. This won't work in the more diverse
Linux world where users are more free to decide.
