I don't think it would be worse. Getting the right package granularity is 
certainly a balancing act but in general I lean towards smaller units of 
functionality; the work in doing so also greatly clarifies their purposes which 
is harder to see in monolithic dumps where everything is intermingled 
toghether. Unfortunately these days the decisions can be biased by legitimate 
maintenance concerns (but I hope we can remedy those in the end).
