[BioBrew Users] separate biobrew install?

I am a newbie with all this BioBrew/Rocks stuff, and I'm not sure that I 
understand how things are set up right now.  AFAIK, BioBrew 0.9 is 
essentially Rocks 2.3.2 with additional bioinformatics packages.  There 
are many other possible application areas, e.g. chemistry, physics, 
etc.  Wouldn't it make more sense to have some sort of 'package' 
structure that could be installed on the rocks front-end directly after 
the regular Rocks install?  That way if someone wanted to run 
bioinformatics programs and physics programs, they could just install 
both 'packages'.  With the current situation, going to rocks 3.0.0 would 
require Glen to release an updated BioBrew.
