In general I'm all for this, but there are some big details to work out.
The most pressing is the issue of backwards/forwards compatibility. I
think that before we head down this path we should get a mechanism in
place for making "metapackages" a reality ---that is, as something
distinct from the compatibility wrappers we currently use to patch the gaps.
But that's a topic for another thread, ne?
