Note that it doesn't need to be *in* the Packages file. It doesn't
even need to be downloaded if the total size of all packages is
less than the free space of the smallest partition [and should be
possible to exclude partitions that are mounted off of directories
which wouldn't be populated in the base system, or which are under
"/home" or "/usr/local/"].
Also, note that this kind of information compresses really well.
