Sorry for not being clear. I started the email with one intention
but ended up in another.
Alternative 1. Just close it.
Alternative 2. Make sure that all the plugin packages actually contain
anything useful. Some packages are virtually empty. Is there
a specific reason for that?
Alternative 3. Provide a proper Provides and replaces which
was already done.
I'm leaning towards alternative 2, but it looks like someone have
moved away from that alternative, and I would like to know why..
