In case no one encouraged you - get this checked in to SOMEWHERE. I'd
like to see tools capable of telling us large-scale silliness in the
distro or packages and things like this help us.

We might not have a good place for it right now but we can make one - a
general distro-tools or whatever cvs location is fine until we find a
better home.

Thanks for working on this, Jason.
