from the distributors site one comment: We have a rather large
per-package overhead. So 10 modules in one package is roughly 10% of the
work of 1 module in 10 packages. The new OpenGL packages have split out
lots of small packages (OpenGLRaw, StateVar, Tensor, ObjectName). Please
review this and see if you can somehow lessen the package number
inflation before your version enters the platform.
