Since I'm the bigmouth making the suggestion, I'll also volunteer to do 
some of the work. I think it will be fairly natural -- there are going to 
be packages that I want to install that I haven't already done, so I don't 
see it as being a lot of extra work. After all, most of the reason to do 
this is because we want to use it, right?
