I'm in complete agreement.

Would you be willing to sign on to get these done? There's been precious
little in the way of progress here in the past few weeks, and it would be 
nice to have some folks stepping up to actually crank some of this out. 
If it's left to just a few of us to get it all done, it's going to be a 
long while before we see a 1.0 release. And if you're as interested as 
you seem in seeing these packages included, this will insure that they are.
