We can automatically produce a "top 40" matrix of 

        packages vs architectures
        packages vs os revision levels
        number of netbsd users vs architectures
        broken packages vs above
        binaries packages vs above etc

We can (amazingly) boot strap the entire thing in the same way pkg_add
is currently bootstrapped.
