OK, the code is separated in the 0.7 branch[1]. I'm also thinking
about creating a yesod-base package like you mentioned. Here's some
bikeshedding stuff:

* Should it be yesod-base or yesod-core?
* Maybe we should leave it as yesod and create a new package called
yesod-complete? (I don't particularly like this...)
* Should yesod-base have a plain Yesod module, or should that be in
the yesod-complete package and export all the stuff (forms,
persistent) that we have right now?
* And should we split the scaffolding tool into its own package as
well? This probably depends a lot on which base (base or complete)
ends up getting the plain "yesod" name.
