true. but there are serious flaws in it right now, imo. also, since the 
security model is turned off anonymous people can post packages or approve 
them, making the audit trails fairly useless. i don't mind trying to keep the 
packages updated through development but i'm fairly nervous about transfering 
them to production database when the site goes live.
