it seems to me that you supposed too much about Anthony's question. I cannot
read anithing about what you wrote in Anthony's mail.

Read it as the possible question that may rise in a user's mind while reading
the description of this package.  We should provide enough information to let
users choose one package among other.

More over, i find questions like Anthony's one to be useful for ITPers: they may
make people realize about the true usefulnes of a particular package.

It all depends on the mind with which you read a mail.
