Also I don't really want to open/install all headers, it just looks like most 
of them are required to build a plugin at the moment and I a) was too lazy; 
b) did no feel competent enough; to choose the ones that should not 
be installed, leaving it up to your consideration.
If you don't want to install some of them AND it doesn't affect the plugin build process -
fine, I don't care.

I'm definitely not the right person to answer such questions.
