I've been running through the list of packages I own which are listed in
your status report as missing from comps. Many of them are valid (and
have been added), but there are also quite a few false positives:

* AllegroOGG (library)
* Glide3 (library)
* Hermes (library)
* adime (library)
* arc (cmdline tool)
* bin2iso (cmdline tool)
* coldet (library)
* dumb (library)
* glyph-keeper (library)
* goffice (library)
* lzo (library)
* ode (library)
* ogre (library)
* soundtouch (library)

How do we handle these, blacklist them? (Maybe hidden somewhere in the
wiki so that you don't have to maintain the blacklist?)
