Pink background is "not packaged", grey background is "in progress".

For "in progress" items, links to (for now) Debian Bug Tracking System,
FreeBSD Problem Report, and Gentoo Bugzilla are provided.

For the summary line, Debian 208(41) means 208 projects are already
packaged, and 41 projects are in the progress of packaging.

Are you suggesting linking to the project's homepage, or upstream
source tarball? I am not sure whether that makes sense...

On the other hand, I think that if there are projects in the table
that doesn't use distutils yet, they should be fixed.
