Though I'll note this is also somewhat awkward -- for instance, looking
at buildtools,I think some of those commands should be globally
installed, and some shouldn't. But changing that means refactoring the
commands into two distributions; inter-distribution refactoring feels
very heavy to me, especially for something I'd consider a UI adjustment.
