Did I say that?  No.

Making it easier for me to give them age-appropriate comics (by
having fortune-like multiple packages) isn't too much, is it?

But if MadamAndEve is not on the list of supported comics that
I've installed for dosage, then there's no need to explain.
Parenting is already busy enough trying to help them understand 
why any number of $ACTIONs are "wrong", why would I want to add
any more?

NOTE that I thing that packaging dosage is a *good* idea!  It
would be better, though, if the the supported-cartoon list could
be broken up into multiple packages.  That's all I'm saying.
