I'm not sure that's right. I think it may be useful (and probably 
expected by users) on debian, say, to have a "twisted" package which 
installs every little bit of code associated with twisted, and a 
twisted-core package which is the core bits. The "twisted" package 
wouldn't actually contain any data, but simply depend on all the other 
packages. Such a package may actually even be *necessary*, in order to 
properly migrate dependancies forward (note that I'm not a debian 
packaging expert so I'm just guessing there).
