Yep. We will drop the split package.

There is  no perfect solution with build time modules. It's broken by design.

So, I think we'll rollback to one package co-maintained by Bartholomej and me,
with interesting optional modules and auth-pam (I use it).
Nothing should block a nginx update, so if auth-pam is incompatible,
it will be dropped.

Passenger external module will be dropped as it causes too frequent rebuild.
