Does it maybe make sense to put related packages like this into a
subdirectory (e.g. pkgsrc/editors/ted/ted, pkgsrc/editors/ted/ted-Dutch,
etc)?  The festival package I installed recently would be a good candidate
for this as well - it has 23 seperate packages, which is over 1/3 of the
packages in pkgsrc/audio.

BTW, I think editors would be better than print as a category for the new
ted packages (which I appreciate very much btw - installing tonight!  ;o).

CU!  Mike.
