So please take this number with a grain of salt ;-)

Not totally. It will install over 1400 of those. Even though transfig
only needs a few, those need others, who need others, etc.

If it was only a few getting installed I would not care.

The size of what gets installed is over 800 MB.

That's a damn big grain of salt.

Well, transfig users should think twice what functionality they expect -
perhaps libreoffice-draw is good enough :)

It is not that users want transfig, it is that ImageMagick-extra appears to be recommending transfig. People suddenly notice that the same TW installation now wants to download thousands of packages, not knowing why.
