I for one am actually very encouraged by the amount of activity around
improving packaging. There are lots of people that care deeply about
this stuff and are trying to get it right and improve things. We
should be supportive of them and help where we can.

If something isn't working like you think it should, I would always
try asking first. In my experience, people on this list are very
helpful in that regard, perhaps in part because they know certain
things are in flux.
