That's interesting. I wonder if listbugs etc. could be more tightly
integrated so that they share less run through the package list rather than
each going over the packages separately. Maybe they already do this, but I
get the impression that they're all just add-on shell scripts running with
low-granularity hooks such as 'pre-install' etc.
