At the rate we're going, every class and every interface is going to
be in a separate package.

Keeping the dependency graph clean is great, and there's plenty to do
there. But there's also something to be said about being able to keep
a substantial portion of it in your head.  The cleanliness of the
graph isn't so important if most users still can't understand just
because there are so many pieces that they wouldn't normally use
