Split packages are created from the same compiled sources. The main work is
done in the common build function. The additional overhead of creating each
package is simply the overhead of archiving the files. The point is irrelevant,
however, as makepkg's "--pkg" option can be used to select the desired package
and skip the rest.

As for whether or not it is more useful to have two packages in the AUR, I'm
actually neutral.
