"Clumping" vs. "splitting" debates are endless, in many fields.  In the
case of the ZTK, we have tried to say that the "core" toolkit consists
only of packages in wide use by more than one of the "constituent"
communities:  any package which doesn't meet that criterion should just
be managed by the community which already cares for it.

If that community organizes automated testing for it package set(s), and
publishes results (especially failures) for those packages when used
with the core, then the broader communitiy has proved willing to work to
resolve those problems.
