Yes, but the question is if we can live with it :)

I have been thinking more than once about splitting the "externals"
directory and provide a set of independend externals. I'm not sure though

The problem is that Debian does not have a notion of "compiling only
half of the package", which makes it hard for me to include the
whole set in Debian, because things break on every odds and ends,
and we do not have something like a "common release". This too makes
it harder to assure the quality of the system, because at every
time some part of the packages could be in a "transition state".
