to give my answer to this question (but please read my first email and 
decide yourself before reading mine):

.. scroll down ..


.. have you made some propre thoughts?


.. really? 

.. ok, here are mine:

if you have to break backwards compatibility, break it good and hard. 
we already made all ISOs (except the last) unusable by removing 
current and making core. NOW is the time to split up extra in mantle 
and crust. if possible before the next iso gets released. lets set a 
milestone in arch and provide a fundament for the future. besides: 
extra is huge and a splitup would do only good to it.
