without having something to add about arrows to the discussion, a little
side note from your distribution package maintainer: Before you split up
stuff even more into little packages, consider keeping one package but
offering different modules If it is just about offering alternative APIs
(and not really avoiding additional dependencies), this should be
sufficient and is less work for us.
