every parent [1] will have to go through the list of available comics, 
evaluate them and disable them. 
-> IMO it would be better to have /etc/dosage/disbled be a directory in 
which to drop lists of unwanted comics. That way whatever groups take 
offense/don't want a group of comics can easily (they don't need to mess 
with your packages conffile) create a package that disables a certain kind 
of comics.

This is still a problem on upgrades though, if dosage includes new comics, 
and you upgrade before the filter-unwanted-comics-package is upgraded you 
could end up with unwanted packages.

hm, how about this:
- have a /etc/dosage/collections directory you can drop a files. The name of 
the dropped file is the collection name, the contents of the file is a list 
of supported comics making up the collection.
- add the option for the admin to block access to comics of category X, or 
to only allow access to comics of category Y
 -> the building of collections can be done by however feels it's usefull to 
categorize comics according to some criteria
 -> collections might group the available comics according to subject/style/ 
genre/language/... which would be more broadly applicable then just kid 
friendliness (e.g. user only wants Dutch comics/ doesn't want comics 
dealing with religion, ...)
