What use is a package system when the user interface is cluttered up by
everything that _could_ be installed?
It would appear a good idea to me if the respective menu entries were
added by autoloads contained in the package.
The package autoloads are expensive in startup time; getting some
payback over monolithicness would seem appropriate.
