Doh!  I noticed that, but the implications didn't occur to me.

But then we need a 2_NONUS, or perhaps we just arrange for all packages
to be in popularity order, and have as many non-US CDs as it happens to
take depending where the packages land.

I think that's a big enough change to leave for a later release, unless
someone else is confident that they can change this without breaking

I think my next cut will allow erlang and xspecs back in CD1, to see
what that gives us.
