Hmm, that brings up two ideas for the wishlist:

The first(hard):  automagicly knowing package version numbers (for when we
have a true packaging system I'd guess.

The second(not so hard hopefully):  auto dealing with either gz or bz2
archives.  That's gota be the most annoying reason to have to go thru the
whole profile just to check wheather or not a package is correctly in the
profile as far as that goes. hehe
