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.
see www.debian.org for a primitive attempt at this
