What you are missing is a simple index scheme. Rather than
devolving back to primal chaos, we should implement a simple indexing
scheme to find where a package is.
In the simplest incarnation, it would be a file:
Usin this simple scheme, dloc kernel-package would show you
the full path.
I do not find indexing a sufficient object to an organized
heirarchy for the config elements.
