#21 Separate Web and Daemon dependencies somehow

Packaging (1)

Would be nice to install Netdisco as web app only, or Poller Daemon only. One use case is where we don't have net-snmp around for compiling the perl bindings (e.g. have this problem on the Heroku demo site).

One way would be to use the cpanminus+Module::Install "features" feature. It's disliked by some, but seems to work well. Another way would be to have a set of metadata-only packages which specified different sets of dependencies.

What I think important is that the simplest thing does the most obvious - i.e. Installing App::Netdisco gives the whole shebang. Then there is some way to explicitly say "web" or "daemon".
