Useful info. I believe I've run into a couple of those packages
already. My ineptitude with the deb package system made me think it
was probably my fault.
On that note, I've actually started a package related wiki project
sort of modeled after the rosetta stone for unix site
Just a scratchpad wikia project at the moment.
Eventually I'd like to have a bunch of information there including
things like repository information and linkage to more detailed docs.
Other people who have to deal with lots of different *nix flavors
might find it helpful.

Definitely. Besides, all bashing should be reserved for vi vs. emacs
