[avahi] Modular Avahi releases?

The avahi source tarball contains bindings for several languages. Because
of the way debian works, this cause various problems (or well, overhead) for
us. Especially the mono bindings seem to cause a lot of overhead (as mono
itself still seems to be very much in flux)
Would it be possible to split up avahi into several source release ? So one
for avahi's core, one for the mono bindings, one for qt etc.. This would make
our live as packages a lot easier. And for upstream it'll become a lot easier
to do small releases for small fixes to a specific binding. Dbus is also
going this route, which is something i'm really looking forward too.
If it's decided that a split-up is too much work, although i think it makes
live easier for everyone, i'll probably start cutting up the source tarball
for debian. But this is ofcourse sub-optimal
