There will be a big tarball with a script to build and install everything 
in proper order (a build similar to the process). And also 
tarballs for each individual separate package. The big tarball will be 
updated each time one of  the smaller tarballs gets a release, which will 
allow new users to install everything or old users just to update the new 

The big tarball will probably be released after all the individual 
packages have made the 4.3.4 release, which will not occur before december 
at least.
