Dependencies cleanup? #272
Some of us riak_core users have been discussing the list of dependencies riak_core has, and to our best understanding some of them don't exactly belong to riak_core itself (webmachine, mochiweb, protobuffs, etc.).
Do you guys think there is a chance we can do some cleanup in that area?

What is the aim, and what are your criteria for 'belongs'? Folsom provides stats, riak_core provides stats. I see in @tsloughter's fork riak_core does not have stats any longer. Is that OK? And what is the cost of the deps you want to cut, what do you gain from cutting them?
Yea, discovered the protobuff issue for handoffs today :).
So that definitely has to be added back unless it was made possible to handoff with a binary or something.
As for folsom, I was undecided on that. I use it myself for stats, so would end up with it in a riak_core project anyway, but if core is to just provide the building blocks for a distributed system someone may want to use another stat counter.
My gutting was more of an experiment, but I think necessary in some places.
