True. Perhaps we should probably setup a more powerful task-force
consisting of a couple people who have direct access to the sections and
can move packages around as they see fit for them in a bigger picture.

I've thought about this, but perhaps we should test it out a bit more
and perhaps wait till Erich (or somebody else :) implements moving
packages around before it gets announced to d-d-a. It would be bad if it
got announced big-time and people say: "D'oh, I can't even move my
packages from one section to another, what's this?" and turn away...
