So it would mean that if I am looking for just one clock or just one
specific monitor I will have to install and keep installed (unless I
manually erase them) 7 clocks and 15 monitors.

It was (IIRC) agreed that we will package every dock and we will create
bundles of specific functionality, to maybe install all of them, try
them, select the one we like and erase the rest, using small packages.

Please, correct me if I am wrong.
