Distribution techniques are not limited to some specific mechanical
If I ship some product in three parts, such that the combination of those
three parts is consistently assembled and used, then I'm distributing
If, on the other hand, I happen to be shipping the component parts for
some product but that product typically does not arrive at the other end,
then I'm not distributing that product.
