If the package name was on the same line as the text, you'd get more
information on the page - though I guess it might end up with the text
being too dense.
It would be nice (though perhaps difficult) if the support tasks
(Typesetting, viewing, Data Acquisition, Image analysis in the case of
the science pages) were not mixed in with the subject tasks.
If it were easy to get the table of contents into the left hand part
of the page (while still having all the packages on one page) that
would be nice (but is really icing on the cake and only worth doing if
I like it.
 Up until last week, this only applied to Typesetting and Viewing -
which naturally sorted to the end of the list.
