If I have a package already, and I want to add a new subpackage, as a 
seperate distribution, what would that entail?  E.g., I have the paste 
package as it is, and I want to add paste.deploy as a separate 
distribution, but without splitting up anything else.  Do I have to 
modify the original Paste setup?
