A list-vote maybe?

All in favour of one package for the Gtk2::Ex name space vote +1.
All in favour of many packages for the Gtk2::Ex name space vote -1.

To make the decision even harder, I'll throw in another possibility: 
Have separate distributions, but offer a bundle to install all of them
-- like Gavin's Bundle::Gnome2.

i think the bundle route is preferable b/c it will allow modules to
release separately and will require no real coordination. any one is to
be allowed to place their stuff anywhere in Gtk2::Ex (within reason,
behave damninit.) As modules there-in prove their maturity they should
be added to the bundles.

I kinda like the single package route as it's easier to maintain,
however I can see the benefit to the bundle as well. The only real
complicating factor I can see off-hand is that Gtk2::Ex::Simple::Dialogs
depends upon Gtk2::Ex::Constants... Essentially I feel that if there are
any inter-module dependencies they should probably be packaged together
anyways as to get one you're going to get at least two if not more.
Bleh, I know nothing... brain hitting overload mark... too many
options... GAH!

if you follow the logic that dependencies should be pkg'd together then
everything would be one big tarball. i could easily want
Gtk2::Ex::Constants but care less about the dialogs therefore i think it
is far preferable to pkg and make then available separately. 

a) One package for Gtk2::Ex::*
b) One package for Gtk2::Ex::* and another for Gtk2::Ex::Simple::*
c) A package for each Gtk2::Ex::* and one bundle Bundle::Gtk2::Ex
d) Give in to the anarchy and let everyone decide for themselves how
     they package their stuff but at least agree on name spaces
e) <insert yet another complicated flying monkey wrench here/>

c is my resounding vote. the list (consensus) should be in charge of
what goes into any major bundles (Gtk2::Ex, Gtk2::Ex::Simple, ...,) but
others are welcome to create their own so long as they (once again)
