Hmm...  So could you please tell what that idea was about? :)

I have a very simple idea: instead of just data.tar.gz there should be a set
of files called:

    data.tar.gz -- main data of the package (something that must be installed
    whenever we install this package)

    data.part-name.tar.gz   -- an optional part of the package

All `part-name' are to be listed in control file.

Is it a feasible idea?
