Samba's distribution grew larger.  It's time to split samba package?

o I need samba as file server but no need swat.
o I need whole Documentation.

So, I want to propose splitting samba package as bellow.

samba-base	Base package, including server and client
samba-doc	Documentation
samba-swat	Swat related part
samba		Meta package includes all above

Furthermore, samba-base might be splited into samba-{common, server,
client}, but I don't feel it is too small pieces.

Any comments?
