I'd vote against it. busybox is not strictly spoken a system dependency, but it 
can be a vital tool in case of a broken system.
Since it doesn't really have many dependencies itself, you would just gain about 
4-5MB disk space.

Of course, everybody can add it to his own world set, but I think it's a good 
idea to have something like busybox around by default.
