oh joy, even more packages. i guess we are trying to be the first
distribution to have 10000 packages. as if dpkg doesn't already have
enough problems with the number of packages we have now. what's the
point of a split if not to give you more control what you install or
not? adding more packages to the distribution, including an empty one
which forces you to install a whole bunch of others seems like a
really dumb way to go. sorry.
