That's probably accurate, however most server users fit into some
different 2% bucket. 98% don't need Tomcat either, but breaking that
would be really bad.

Perhaps we should instead assess why apt needs to spend so much time
and bandwidth checking for updates. Other devices with frequent
updates (eg mobile phones) don't have to download nearly as much data
-- surely apt could be a bit smarter.
