Agreed, but the single package approach can cause problems.  For example, 
I'm running E-smith (now SME) Linux on my server and it HAS to have the 
tree package configuration.  Not that this has been a huge problem to 
date as someone in the development group usually repackages things. 

It seems that creating the single package causes more confusion when 
upgrading than following the Redhat approach (i.e., three packages).  
Folks get what Redhat gives them out of the box and have no real control 
over how Redhat packages things.  When it comes time to upgrade, they 
have to figure out why there are two sets of package configurations 
floating around to accomplish the same thing.
