Well, OK, I see your point. But what should we do about e.g. tiny perl
modules. My/our impression was that ftp-master was not keen on having
many small packages. For example, libcatalyst-modules-perl has installed
size of 1468k, but bundles 81 modules. On average then, these would have
installed size less than 20k if unbundled.
All the best,
