I'm sorry, but I don't have time to search for this. Either trust me, or
ask the FTP masters directly (for example on IRC).

The general recommendation is to minimize the number of binary packages,
because over time, this increases the overall load on *all* of the
Debian infrastructure. This is not only dak that we're talking about.
Think BTS, tracker, udd, and all the services in Debian that need to
carry the full database of packages (there's too many of them, I can't
list them using my memory only). The more package there is, the more
resource it takes.

So micro packages are to be avoided if possible.

That's another problem. I don't have the resources (ie: neither time,
nor a physical server) to perform such a test. Such a test would be
running tempest twice, with and without the cli tools, and see if
there's any regression.
