    That is true, but that doesn't make the package "important" in the sense I
got from his message.  What I envisioned was core packages.  IE, things that,
without them, Debian would not run (libc?) or would leave a gaping hole that a
slew of people would miss (apache?).  

    I ITP'd parchive2, have the package done and waiting on a sponsor.  I and
pretty much anyone else who decodes binaries off the newsgroups uses it.  I
don't believe it qualifies as important as he meant it even though it is
important to me.
