Linux is a program and not a collection. It does include lots of sound
drivers, lots of disk drivers etc because there is a need to.

To take another example - which should we throw out of fedora core
vi or emacs .... Clearly the answer is neither.

I do broadly agree with you however. In the case of apache we have a 
web server which does everything in the generic web serving space.
