Seems to me that a game is a game. The destinction between "useful" and
"frivolous" doesn't seem all that productive. The more fractured and
broken up the packaging becomes, the harder it is for a selective
installer, like myself, to find all the packages pertaining to a
particular topic area.
More to the point, we should ask ourselves whether vacation, calendar,
and banner, are games or utilities/tools. If they are not games what
class of tool are they?
I sort of see them as text tools...
