If there's a meta-package, there's no point in having the non-split package
at all -- it would actually be a bit *more* confusing to have both.  (Hence
why I originally said, before this splitting work started, that lang/gcc3
should then automatically become a metapackage of all the split ones.)

I already mentioned it before the splitting work started, and this is the
other still-unfinished bit of work.
