Hmmm. I've posted a few bugs so far (#232882, #232885, #232886,
#232887, #232889, #232890). I've since updated the script to check
more of the mirror, and the criteria I'm now checking with are now:

  package > 1MB (previously > 10MB)


  /usr/share contents > 2MB   OR  % of package in /usr/share > 80%

I'm running the new script and it's picking up a lot more packages
(and taking much longer, of course). I'll post the output again when
it's done. I'll wait for discussion before posting more bugs, as this
list promises to be much bigger. And in any case, I'll not post
duplicate bugs against the packages I've already hit above...
