In theory, but we make no attempt to do package-package dependencies
(that would be maddening), only collection-collectoin.

Which is why I put it in collection-genericrecommended.

So we should include col-gen.rec. in medium. 

But it makes no difference in practice, as Jonathan said, since only
XeTeX packages use it.  So I won't undo what has been done.  We can
change it later, or not.

As for ifpdf, it's part of oberdiek, so we'd need to ask Heiko to split
it out into its own package.  Since no problems have ever been reported,
I'm not inclined to take up his time with that.

Anyway, I will rebuild the images in a little while.
