Things have changed since the last discussion too.  Solaris 8 is best
effort only now.  Does 9 include LWP::FTP (or whatever) such that wget
isn't required as part of the bootstrapping process?

I'm not saying that pkgutil should abandon solaris 8, but it may at
least be an option.

Given the above, I was and still am in favour of the exception in this
