We already have had issues with people changing things in ztk.cfg that 
broke things in zopeapp.cfg, because they don't want to test it. If we 
were to split things further, we'll see more breakage and more 
integration issues as people won't bother to test even less.

For now, just see the extra packages as the ultimate in compatibility 
tests and run them please.

Furthermore, the bicycle toolkit is the only candidate for such 
splitting up right now; other groupings don't seem to be well defined. 
Finally, people who want fine grained already have the ultimate in 
fine-grained in the form of individual releases.

Maybe next year.
