Currently we have more-or-less one file per package, except for sets of
closely related packages, like GMP/MPFR/MPC.

There’s a slight overhead associated with each file (license header,
module declaration, module imports, additional ‘stats’ when doing
package searches or ‘--list-available’, etc.)  That’s why I thought we
could try an in-between approach like this.

I’m open to suggestions on this front, though!
