Hey, OOo dictionaries are big... let's make errata packages for them
differently for updates.  Maybe for the data for $game, too.


I think that this is a pretty bad idea for us to follow down.  Much like
we package perl modules natively rather than telling people to use CPAN,
we should be handling updates to packages natively rather than errata
packages that stand along-side.  If the argument is size and space, then
help out with testing presto and getting the support into the
buildsystem so that we can have it enabled by default and helping for
*all* packages rather than just a select few that have built their own
way of doing things
