There is another aspect of this which has not yet been mentioned.

When fink is analyzing dependencies, it (apparently, since I can't read
perl) creates a list of existing .info files which it can suggest it
will build in order to meet unmet dependencies.  These will have to be
generated in some new way, which adds all the splitoffs to the list
as well sas the original.

Still thinking this through, will have more comments later.
