It's not up to me either, but ...

... what Bjørn describes sounds reasonable to me - and if he wants to
start the whole approach in Staging, I'd assume it would probably the
best way to go. And, yes, the other packages need to adopt, but this is
rather a way with a longer vision in mind. FWIW, I never understood this
whole cascading of *gst* packages had to come from one source or from
the other... If we can make it easier to relax the inter-dependencies of
these package, I think it would make it easier for everyone in the end.
