I'm inclined to agree ... however, I don't have time to implement such a change 
the moment, and it certainly won't get into the 1.0.0 release since we already 
a code freeze for that.

Another candidate for bundling would be the XML support.

I'm not sure that there would be any practical advantage for distribution 
though ...
Most people wanting a binary only RPM solution would just be inclined to get one
RPM with everything in it, rather than getting a main RPM and separate ones for
various bundles.
I'd guess that most people also want some features as standard rather than 
extras, so file, http, and https schemes may need to be there, while gopher, 
(perhaps ftp since most people use http for file downloads nowadays) probably 
do not.
