Yeah, that page is definitely screwed up:
* The daemon mascott is there to offend people! Oh, woe!
* The daemon has blue/purple shoes (slippers?).
* "You are now in the directory "math". I beg to differ.
I am in Houston. I am in a nice swivel chair. I am in
a knit shirt and cotton pants. I am in socks and shoes.
Some might contend that I am insane.
I am not, however, in a directory, "math" or otherwise.
* The page claims to offer ``the'' one-line descriptions
of the packages. No matter what the descriptions are, that
can't be right since there's no unique one-line description.
Had it said ``some'' instead of ``the'', it would be okay.
