While I agree that so called dependencies don't always make sense, why
is it important to remove samba?

I don't know what app actually depends on samba, but I have yet to
trigger that dependency with my tdebase install.

This is one of the reasons I start with the basics (tdebase on text
only base), being able to decide whether or not the required
dependencies are worth it, e.g. I don't know how many of the raspbian
X apps are gnome based (none installed), but I decided not to install
epiphany after seeing the huge list of uninstalled dependencies.

Which raspbian and trinity did you use on your Pi?
