how to split packages


When splitting a package, one tends to create a new package
containing a portion of the original, like

proggie and proggie-extra, with
proggie suggesting proggie-extra.

However, this breaks build-depends/upgrade with apt-get, and
what else.

To avoid it, if it is possible, it could be done this way:

"proggie-core" contains the core material, and 
"proggie" contains the extra programs, and depend on "proggie-core"
