Is it really necessary to make individual packages? All packages seem
to be rather small, and closely tied to eachother. Furthermore, your

matchbox-panel-manager depends on matchbox-panel, but it doesn't.

Well, these are how they were done originally, (my own efforts also did
them as individual packages). What is the policy on lumping small
packages together?

The policy is to create a package structure that simplifies the maintenance of these packages. It may, however, be nice to provide a meta-package that simply lumps all of the small packages as dependencies for the meta-package, e.g. meta-pkgs/gtk2-extras or meta-pkgs/suse9.
