There exists ambiguity as to the audience for the index.  Humans are 
assumed; I propose that packaging systems need to be on the list as well.

Knowing your motivation helps.  I don't think anyone expected you to 
jump on the implementation.  It's OK to say that you don't have time to 
implement something.  There are other people that can help, and if not 
it'll just have to wait.  We have to make sure we distinguish between 
desirability and feasibility.
