The OP wants the offensive parts split off in a separate package. He
doesn't want dosage removed from the archive. And splitting does indeed
change something. If his kids are not root they cannot install the
"offensive" part. They might find some way around the restrictions (eg.
download them directly thru a proxy or something) but this will raise
the bar somewhat. I do not understand why you keep stating things all
through this thread that seem to deliberately ignore exactly what the OP
is asking.
