Reques from package developers

Please don't check in package options "Add package unit to uses section."
Becasue in most cases resources and property editors are added in package register unit, this makes the applications exe  without necessity bigger.
After remove this units from project unit (.lpr-file) my application was ~1MB smaller:

Look at picture to find the option:

a better ply would be to start dividing their code to run time and design time packages :P

This is package dependent actually (there ARE some packages which require it, because it's not properly divided as taazz said), but if I'm not mistaken that option is on by default and most package developers don't even notice it.

I think this option should be default not checked.
Even if someone split his components in to designtime and runtime package so he can forget to uncheck this option from runtime package.
I saw this option first time on 24th June as I inspected exe-file from my programm with resource editor.
