There are a few modules that are 'semi-core', practically exists
everywhere, but not part of the formal core. I was surprised to find that
DBI is one of them.
Also, if you happen to install a newer version of a core module, (for
unrelated things) FatPacker will assume that you need this version and not
the core one, and will pack it along.
