It would be useful to have some packages that include simple shell scripts
(like fetch-list) software that we can't place on our CDs or FTP servers,
such as realplayer-codecs-8 package.

So an admin installing one of these special packages would be prompted or
it could automatically go out and fetch the needed components and install
on the fly.

This is so admins using pre-built packages and not pkgsrc build system on
some systems, can still take advantage of this software.

Any thoughts on this?
