With my downstream consumer hat on, *if* we go with a bundling solution,
please make sure it's easy to unbundle.  Downstream consumers may need
to do this for policy, security, etc. reasons, so making this too
difficult will mean delays in releases, convoluted hacks, policy
violations, or all of the above.
