My general preference is that we don't go too far down the path of a huge number of small packages, but even so I think zoneinfo makes sense to be in a separate package since it will be updated relatively frequently.

I don't think that the number of packages that we have should be taken in account. The only important thing is that the split is logical. It was a mess before I started to merge some packages but it's still not perfect.
