For Git we have a bunch of different outputs, which works well but is a
bit weird for users.

In other cases, we have “-minimal” variants and a regular, full-featured

There are also cases like Octave where there are several packages.

So I guess it really depends on what the split involves technically and
how it affects actual usage.
