Fine. The most most important is reporting things package by
package. If you mix a report for all packages, it is likely to be
ignored.

Your suggestions were interesting (especially the "quoting" one). We
however have to deal with size contraints some times and quoting adds
at least two extra characters, so it will sometimes be quite hard to
do.

Anyway, we'll see case by case.

I see you mentioned the "bootloader/boot loader" case. I don't
remember if consistency check has been made here. One occurred for
filesystem/file system so I think one is likely to be made for
bootloader/boot loader.
