There is not really an optional thing in rpm terms. So if the
requirement is defined one is stuck with the modules wether one uses
them or not.

I am not sure what would be wise here. Perhaps two wrappers instead of
one. So the current one defines the absolute minimum and a
mailscanner-wrapper-complete version that will pull in lots of other
usefull modules as well as the basic wrapper but some of these extra
modules may never be used depending on the configuration.

In such case I would also like to describe them briefly. So one can
discard the outer wrapper and then remove the unneeded modules with a
small guidance.

I am thinking along the lines of a text file with entries like:

 <some MS config option>
	Requires: <some perl module>

Nothing fancy (TM).

Feel free to think out loud on the matter. I didn't hesitate either ;-)
