Are optional deps in deluge a use case for --asdeps switch?

I just installed the deluge package and to use the gtk ui, two packages are needed. Is this a case to use the --asdeps switch?

librsvg (optional) - needed for gtk ui
pygtk (optional) - needed for gtk ui

If I do use --asdeps, searching for orphaned packages shows these two as orphans which is not what I want.

You don't need to use --asdeps. Just explicitly install librsvg and pygtk.

A valid --asdeps scenario:

This is useful for makepkg and other build from source tools that need to install dependencies before building the package.

Thank you for the link, but both solutions require 3rd party scripts it seems hmm

With pacman-4.2 it will be a valid optdeps scenario...  Until then, it will just create oprhan packages.
