It's definitely an issue: AFAIK we don't want lang to depend on those.
What's in IO/Collections that you can't do without for Jestr?

There's no precedence for a Configuration dependency of any sort since
there's never been a Configuration release.  And if we keep adding
features prior to the 1.0 RC, there won't be a Configuration release for
a while probably ;)  (I'm not saying that as a bad thing, just a matter
of fact).
