Then why bother with that, and not just keep them separate?

Separate is nice.  Smaller packages, smaller repository, possibly
different people commiting, one bug doesn't require release / rebuild
of everything.

BTW, currently the Apache::Test version in 2.0.4 is 1.31, while the
latest one on CPAN is 1.30.

This is a bit of a PITA while packaging.  I want to package both mp2
and the latest Apache::Test; preferably separately (vserver users
whine a lot when having to install something they don't need).  So,
both apache-mod_perl and perl-Apache-Test packages.  Now, I could switch
between the CPAN version and bundled version of Apache::Test (depending
on which one is later at the moment), but it's heavily annoying...
