On a somewhat related note to the shareware data discussion, one of the 
things I'm interested in packaging for extras is hobbit 
<http://hobbitmon.sourceforge.net/>. hobbit is a GPL'ed replacement / 
upgrade for the server side of Big Brother <http://bb4.com/>. It's only of 
limited use without clients being monitored. For the client monitoring, 
you have to either use the Big Brother client (not free / open source) or 
the hobbit client. hobbit client is BSD-licensed, but still very alpha (as 
in, "it only compiles on NetBSD 2 right now" alpha). Any problem with the 
hobbit server being in extras, and the hobbit client once it's further
