Moving this to main would also open the door to possible inclusion in
the LiveCD or Server install CD. Actually, DVD images will make better
use of this.
In low bandwidth environments the "server" may be another neighboring
laptop or desktop. Even if universe is on by default, this single
package would mean much faster mass installs when you have a DVD
image, for example.
