Rest assured, we are in full agreement here. I was just pointing out
that it has the side effect of making sensitive material more visible,
which shows how weak the argument "if the package is split, I'll be able
to prevent my kids from seeing p0rn" is (except under extreme, hopefully
clearly undesirable conditions exemplified in my previous mail).

If it doesn't, then the above argument in favor of the split is moot,
IMO. Anyway, I don't care much whether there is or isn't a split,
personally. Good luck.
