Except in this case they are already split (qasconfig and qasmixer are
already in Debian); so what we're talking about is whether it makes
sense to put them together now.
Looking at popcon for qasconfig and qasmixer, it seems that a fair
amount of users only have one of the packages installed (83 vs. 128
users, respectively), so in my view it's a good idea to keep them
separated, so that the users who chose not to install both packages
still have that possibility.
