Yeah, a custom pkgIndex would be a good idea too. I'm not a big fan of the 
fine-grained mechanism myself. I prefer to just say 'I want this package 
and all the classes that go with it', instead of listening all the classes 
I will happen to need. I know some people do that in Java too, but I just 
find it grows into a long mess with time.
