Adding 4K rpms to the various arch repodatas is going to hurt yes, but
it's just growth. The real pain here is doing it as subpackages from a
single srpm. This is a show stopper. It means any change to any part
of any subpackage would require bumping 4K rpms, generating 8K as many
deltas, etc... Doing an update in bodhi would be crazy. This really
really really needs to be done as individual srpms.
