Ah okay, I think I see where you're going. In my original email I was
trying to say: "maybe all the variables between all the packages
should be coordinated so they don't clash" but seeing how huge of a
job that would be it's probably much safer this way. I'm guessing it's
probably not being used by many people, and I'm all for getting rid of
clutter :-)
