"Large" is a relative term. And Gnome is large... But there is no reason
to decide on this, one could easily do both, structuring /opt like /usr
*and* use that /opt/<package> for packages where it makes sense (I would
like to see things like KDE and Gnome completely in /opt/gnome and
/opt/kde, since this makes handling much easier).
