Yeah, although even that can be difficult if there are things that are
not parallel installable easily, and filtering deps could be tricky
there as well in case the two packages provide some of the same
things. ;( 

I'm in general against doing any layered products or the like... I
don't think we have enough interested people to manage such a thing and
I think it would cause a lot more complexity and confusion. ;( 
I'm happy to be convinced otherwise though. ;)
