3.2 and spring-dm forcibly installed even if you don’t need either of them.  What’s worse
is if you need Spring4, you have other problems of multiple versions and such.    By removing
that dependency, that problem wouldn’t pop up.

but not much of one.
Providing such an optional feature would indeed be useful...
