I think it would be bad even if the interface stabilises or whatever
(as Marcus noted). Would you like to see a separate package for all
the GNU utilities? I sure wouldn't, ld in a specific package, gcc in
another, ls in one, cp in even a weirder place. ;)
I would rather abolish the whole mentality of packages and have one
central system called GNU with all relevant sources in /src. Just
like *BSD has.
