Well, since it would be nice to have a console tool 
(i.e. /usr/bin/09F911029D74E35BD84156C5635688C0) to print out this number 
for use in shell scripts, as well as having bindings for scripting 
languages, I'd like to see this split out into several binary packages at 
least:

lib09F911029D74E35BD84156C5635688C0-1
lib09F911029D74E35BD84156C5635688C0-dev
09F911029D74E35BD84156C5635688C0-tools
lib09F911029D74E35BD84156C5635688C0-ruby
lib09F911029D74E35BD84156C5635688C0-perl
lib09F911029D74E35BD84156C5635688C0-python
lib09F911029D74E35BD84156C5635688C0-lua
...etc...
