Split packages are good if the game engine changes but the data files do 
not, or the other way around.  That way users do not have to download 
"both" packages to update when only one has changed.  When a game does 
split itself into two packages upstream, it probably updates these 
separately and is worth two packages.  It seems that is the case with 
volleyball because of the different minor version number of the two 
source tarballs.
