Packaging WM themes - question

Hi.  I'm about to submit an ITP for a set of KDE window decoration and widget 
themes and I'm trying to decide upon the best way to package them.  They're 
all from the same author (part of a single large release with the same 
version number) and there's about 39 themes in total.

Options are (1) release one huge-arse binary package; (2) release 39 
packages, one for each theme; (3) release a moderate number of packages each 
containing a few themes.

I am hesitant to do (1) because of the user's disk space usage.  I am 
hesitant to do (2) because I'm not sure that debian wants a million 
kde-theme-* packages on its servers.

It seems GTK and enlightenment themes are currently using method (2) but 
there's not nearly so many themes on the servers.

Thus I lean towards (3) but I'd really like people's input.
