that why no one of these applets are included in the list.

Please included all missing binaries! After this we always know which
binaries should be included in the busybox packages.
But I have now idea how we should handle "usefull" binaries. If we
create a stage0 binary package, which contains only a small set of
applets (the absolute minimum), isn't the shell menu-point then useless?
What should the user do in the shell without so many binaries? eg
more/nano (please replace it :))/...
(Is there life after /sbin/halt -p?)
