As you already know, I'm quite new to Debian ;-) but here's my opinion 
from what I've learned/seen here. I'll try to group plugins by 
requirements (ie. all those needing "dict" in a openverse-dict-plugins).
That way you could have the simplest plugins in openverse-base-plugins
(or maybe a better name than 'base') and those requiring more
dependencies in separate packages.
