Ok, but there should be a clear advantage in having two packages.
I do not quite understand why one has  'more room to implement
their own analysis module'? One advantage is see is that less
updates are necessary to follow 'language-c-core', instead of
all of language-c.
Anyway, I think this is a reasonable idea, but as it requires
some work (two repositories, for instance), it would only make
sense if someone wants to work actively on the analysis module
and take over the maintenance of the new code repository.
