That seems to make sense to me.  I suspect most Linux distributions (for
example) bundle Python into multiple pieces already.  My Mandrake system
splits the core into (I think) four pieces.  It also bundles several other
RPMs for PIL, NumPy, Postgres and RPM.  Adding another package for a set of
codecs doesn't seem like a big deal.
