Not really, that's why I suggested one of the fields in the table
would be the standard library name - people should always be able
to use that to find the appropriate package for their distribution
(if there is one, otherwise they'll need to compile from source).

That's a good idea - that would make the simple table have 4 columns:
name, deb, rpm, python module (or "essential").
