Lines aren't really the issue here; the primary one is space in the
Packages file, and the secondary one is utility for users.
Every extra line is only an extra byte, after all.
It would probably be ideal if there was a better way of indicating which
latex modules were in each texlive package than currently, but until a
better method is found, this is probably the best of bad options.
1: By that I mean if we're going to make an arbitrary line in the sand
in policy, it should be based on bytes, not lines.
