--- Comment #13 from James Le Cuirot <chewi at gentoo.org> ---
As Gentoo Java lead, I would prefer that it is kept optional. Although tagsoup
has no runtime dependencies, it does need either Xalan or Saxon at build time,
both of which are quite heavy and have their own string of dependencies.

I don't know exactly what tagsoup does for IcedTea-Web but I get the impression
it isn't needed in most cases so if keeping it optional isn't inconvenient from
a technical perspective then please don't change that.

I imagine a helpful warning would be fairly trivial to add? Gentoo users would
generally know what it means and what to do about it.
