Well, therefore I would not split it at all. If you feel that the core API is right, just
release 1.0 with all stuff left outside, that might cause licensing trouble. You may release
1.1 later on easily with the stuff included as soon as you have answers. As marked out in
the other thread, marking dependencies as optional is perfectly valid.
