Definitely easier than "impossible" -- I only used that word with
hope someone would take it as a challenge. Bug-free "tool suppport
for renamed packgaes" would be tough, and probably not worth the
effort. So, I agree, given dependency issues, probably best to
keep packages, which have dependencies, where they are.
That said, a category called science seems appropriate, even if
math and biology remain as more specific sciences. Other than
is there any doc or definition on what the categories mean?
