We've had lots of complaints that there are too many packages in
Optional. The correct solution is a level between "Standard" and
"Optional", and Ian Jackson (IIRC) proposed many months ago, but until
that happens I'd like to see most new packages go into extra. I think I
can justify it in this case based on the "already know what they are"
