I am appreciative of this.  I am charged by my ISP by the hour.

However most of the major packages which come with documentation are
already split up this way.  Also, if you are in dselect, and doing your
package selection online, wouldnt the time you spend online picking out
just the packages you want be more than just downloading the docs?  I see
a point of diminishing returns here.
