I agree that it should be the other way around (graphicx.sty requires
graphics.sty), but why you say this is not an option?  Maybe not now
if there is no one willing to undertake this task, but in the future?

Only a question: why do you remove eps from the list of extensions
allowed with pdflatex?  It's true that it isn't natively supported,
but epstopdf is allowed to run in restricted shell escape since TeX
Live 2011 and I often use EPS images when I compile with pdflatex.

Other than above comments, the patch looks overall good, thank you!
