That misses the point, at least for the systems as the work now. Having a
single source package to multiple binaries is easy. Managing setups where
you push only some of those binaries into the system gets really ugly.

A pile of git-foo packages works because you almost never push a fix to
one tool alone, and if you do its small enough not to be a big deal.
