Re: Bug#2141: Bsdutils should be broken up



In article <m0tbgrs-00062WC@mongo.pixar.com> you write:

I'm working on a bsdgames package, which would contain (amongst others):
   prime
   factor
   pom
   bcd
   number

This would be an opportunity to move vacation, calendar, and banner into
bsdgames.

However, what about other classics such as:
   trek
   worm
   snake
   wump
   tetris (for ttys)
   robots
   morse
   hangman
   fish
   boggle
?

What do people think about their presence in bsdgames?

Should there be two new packages: bsdgames for the "useful" games (first
list) and a bsdtoys package for the more frivolous ones?
