One question here: are we prepated to ask people to install a plugin
if they want geoip functionality? I'm asking because while generally I
think it's the right way going forward to move external dependencies
into plugins, this one we have offered for a while so, in some way,
not having it out of the box is a regression (unless we decide to
build (some) plugins by default, which currently isn't happening).
