It's probably useful experimenting with star itself and RPM but I
suspect bundling many modules inside one RPM isn't really the RPM way.

Probably there should be something like  "rakudo-moar",
"rakudo-docs-noarch" RPM and a "rakudo-moar-panda" (or similar name)

Handling rakudo-star versioned modules and the upstream ones is likely
to be problematic maybe RPM has a metapackage which can be used for
"rakudo-star-modules" made up of separate RPMs
