This is a very understandable constructive propagation. Everyone who can think 
right, especially from the view of a user should say, yes it is easy and good.

And yes, memory is enough there today. Since some years already.

My way is always a separate directory with all in it and an entry application.

And the key is to try to generate as less dependencies as possible.

Better less functionallity but almost working and extensible than an 
obstructive dependency.
