+1 I think this makes sense. We don't want the controllers to get too big
and handle too much so that they can be reused by people for specific
purposes. These seem like two different parts of functionality and I
believe make sense to be split up.

I think submitting the patch for now is fine as we are in active
development and it is easy to change once some more people weigh in on the
options or conform to lazy consensus.
