That works.

For me it's two things, both of which I can live with but prefer to
avoid if possible.

1. It can and has caused pain in the past when we add extra top level
   things...this is mostly with specific packages (apache2, php5, etc)
   and has less chance of negative long-term impact for a case like
2. Aesthetics.  It just feels ugly to me.

If it's the best option available though and it solves the problem,
I'm ok with it.  They're just things that I'd avoid 'if possible.'
