It'll work. Having the functionality is _extremely_
useful to us..

Actually, I don't think it should get entered into the
pkgdb at all, since it's not being installed on the system, just
packaged. (aka, from a collection of files and directories into
a bundle that can be installed via pkg_add.)
Something for me to look into when I have time.. :-)
