If that is the case and that is hard wired into GParted then I think
there is a bug in the architecture of the modularity of GParted. This
my be sufficient but it it is not necessary.

TBH, I would really be pissed off if I installed GParted, try to run it on
my system - only to get (at best) an info box telling me 'Oh, for *this*
to work you also have to install <bla>....'

GParted is a toolbox, and I don't want to buy every wrench in that box
separate. Because the moment you need it will be the one the shop is
closed (i.e., you're not online to get that package) ....

Same here...

Personally, I don't have btrfs partitions, I don't want btrfs partitions and I
never, ever intend to install btrfs on any hardware that I am responsible for,
so I'd rather not have btrfsprogs installed either, but that's just personal
preference - I like to be able uninstall unnecessary crud and keep only what's
really needed.

That reduces the size of updates, too - no need to download 100's of MB of
stuff for packages that are never used. Not everyone has big pipes to the
internet. Yes, I know btrfsprogs is not that big, but all the little bits add
up. I'd much rather have recommends than hard dependencies if possible.
