Then I'd prefer an extra repo, until now we basically pulled out any
such only tangentially related package out from the source package it
was added to, as there basically no time that a single change will
affect both, and I really do not like that churn – while not a biggie
it just is unnecessary churn, which I'm really not a fan of (and thus
highly probably want to rip this out sooner or later anyway).
