Yes, it's already having 4 very different things... so it should be
split even more according to you. If not, then please, think twice
that it wouldn't make life more difficult to have common and those
headers in a single place.
if a package installs:
+ with the various corresponding .pc
They are usually smart enough to split it in various -devel packages.
If not, it's really not a big deal.. or is it?
(and that could be from spice-common or even spice-server)
