A point for having sugar-base and sugar-toolkit separate from the
shell is that it should be useful in the future to have only installed
the non-shell sugar components so that activities can run as apps in
other environments than Sugar.
Of course, packagers can generate several packages from the same
tarball, but they may need to be told so explicitly and they may not
get the right files in each package at the first try.
