[Health-dev] Poll: GNU Health Packets

Dear GNU Health Users,

having spoken to a couple of people during HealthCon, a question came into my 
mind: How shall we build packages in the future?

In openSUSE we have all modules in one package:
zypper install gnuhealth
installs the server and all GNU Health modules. No doubt, this is very 
convenient. You can still activate only those modules that you really need, 
and the rest just uses some disk space (and maybe some milliseconds processing 
time during startup).

An alternative would be to have one packet per module - this is basically how 
GNU Health is presented on Pypi, and how it was done for Debian. It allows you 
to only install what you really need and do some fine-tuning of your 
installation (of course you can add modules later!)

So, each option has pros and cons.
Let me know your opinion and vote here:
