Currently R can follow dependencies when you install a package from CRAN (and this is the default in Windows, not sure about other platforms), so I'd say this would be a good thing to do. I don't know your revision history on the components, but I'd guess some change more often than others, so there'll be no need to update all of them every time one of them changes.
