Flightgear already has such a system for scenery.  You only download what 
you want, or need. Very few users need scenery for the whole world.

Extending this concept to the bloated aircraft section of fgdata seems quite 
logical.

I donĀ“t think that anyone is talking about splitting apart the core parts of 
fgdata, just the optional aircraft.

Perhaps one day someone will come up with a terrasync-like option to one of 
the front-ends ( fgrun) which will get chosen aircraft on-the fly when 
needed.

I don't know everybody's favourites but, anyhow, maybe it's also a
matter of preferences.  Personally I'd hate having to pull dozends of
repositories just to retrieve the current state of 'fgdata'.  Therefore
I'm quite happy with the current state.

Cheers,
Martin.
