Trying to install owncloud-client-cmd is pulling in ~232MB of X11
libraries, things this VM will never use like DRI, audio, etc. However,
like you say, it is built on Qt and such dependencies are required until
the application is re-factored. in the meantime, I'll look into pyOwnCloud (
https://github.com/csawyerYumaed/pyOwnCloud) or just mounting the space via
WebDav and using rsync.
If you can pass the request to remove the X11 dependencies upstream, it
would be helpful to have a headless server not needing Qt or X11.
