I can't agree with you more. Yes, I've known that is better than
my proposal, however, I'm afraid that it's too hard for us to do.
I want to know how are maintainers feeling about that. I don't 
persist in my proposal. 

BTW, how did it go about too many I-nodes issue? It might be nice
to concatenate all of pkg/ files into one file like RPM's spec file.
