A thought that came up when reading this paragraph: another option
restructuring/grouping to reduce the amount of packages may be to join
smaller packages with weird boundaries into larger ones again. (Not that
I suggest this to be an ultimate option, nor do I know from the top of
my head any candidates for this, but we can keep that on the list of
options we have.)
