If I don't miss something, we have some ports that want to print the
coverage reports for their tests suite. While it's useful for
upstreams (for their development work), I don't really think knowing the
coverage of the test suite is super useful for us but whatever.
But now we have (-> means tdep):
whatever port -> py-test-cov -> py-fields -> py-characteristic
If we next release py-characteristic adds some new tdep and so on...
how many level deep are we going to get?
Because in the end, we fill the ports tree with ports with (IMHO)
arguably usefulness and they do increase the load on maintenance.
