Is there a fundamental technology shift that we have to swallow? Or is
it more a death by a thousand cuts if we go in and start package
The issue is that as soon as you split the package, you end up having
to track both all the splits of that package and the union of all
languages that have translations manually in comps for all releases
where you may have that package. Moreover, users cannot easily add
these languages later to their system.
If you do not split, all these problems go away.
