To me this looks like a design problem in the texlive package. How much
sense does it make to split a package in to 1500+ parts if "texlive-
epstopdf" pulls in (almost?) all of them? You might as well just stuff
it all in a single package.

It was one package time ago, but it was changed; I don't remember the reason. Perhaps to have more grainy control. But as you say, if some thing wants to install them all, the solution is worse.
