Virtual Package Names


I was just testing some code and I noted that there are a number of
virtual packages that do not appear in the 'Authoritative List of
Virtual Package Names'

Is this okay?

Here a few,
 gs_x (gs, gs-aladdin)
 libreadline-dev (libreadline2-dev)
 lpr (lprng)
 tex (texbin, tetex-bin)

There are a number that are only used by a single package at the moment.

If anyone is interested, I have a complete reverse list (virtual package
to providing package) generated from the Provides: lines in the hamm
packages file.

Just checking,
