When the packages were split out, EFS was considered an auxiliary
package and places among the packages. This caused no problem at the
time, because you had to explicitly fetch the sumo, and might as well
use command-line FTP.
Later, EFS was used to implement the package-ui stuff, and became a
dependency. However, there is no real provision for including
packages with the core, and EFS is a complex package with a separate
maintainer. It wasn't considered appropriate to try to pull it back
How about adding a "download and install sumo packages" option to the Packages
