why does qemu-kvm depend on xwindow and audio packages

Asked by ben thielsen on 2012-07-29

i'm using qemu/kvm on a server with no graphical environment/window manager and no audio cards/need for audio processing, and am wondering why these packages are marked as dependencies:

libasound2
libpulse0
libx11-6

it's kind of a bummer to have to install a bunch of packages related to this, either due to direct dependencies or cascaded dependencies of the direct ones

regards
-ben
