The short answer: yes, it is.

Here I can cite the description from my first message:

I made separate packages for each plugin. So user will be able to install only
those packages which he really need. This is the main idea of the project...
LeechCraft is very flexible.

Also not of all plugins are enabled now. So it will be more packages...

You can compare it with KDE infrastructure: kdelibs + lot of programs.
