Longer term the better solution would be to repackage Math as several
smaller packages. However, Paul and I have worked hard to try to make a
wide range of functionality part of a coherent whole, and I would hate
to loose that. Which is my plea to not just hack it apart in a hurry ;-)
Of course since we haven't had any kind of package management until now,
this has basically been a non-issue up till now.
