That's not a reason to split the package. Mozilla is more than 10 mb and
is not splitted. :-)

That's your case, I know other people who use much more. Myself, I use 6
applets on my laptop. And I really doesn't want to have to install 6
packages just to have my applets. Separating them by net/amusement/monitor
isn't a good idea either since I use approximately one of each category.

Really, all the applets provided upstream should be available in a single
package. The packaging done by helix seems reasonable (only the big
gtk-themes is contestable). Also considering the number of people who are
using helix gnome we really should try to be compatible to ease the
upgrade between the 2 sets of packages (I already said I wanted them to be
the same !).

And the selection of good applets is already done at the Gnome level. Not all
available applets are in gnome-applets.
