	This is a really good idea.  By powering the configuration with
	the use of XML, it would be way easier to generate dependancy
	graphs, and easily determine breakage in package hierarchies.

	With the power of XML, it will make it easier to fish out
	description data from the package XML configuration files,
	and then use it for automated catalog'ing; thus giving us
	the Extra Edge (tm) ;-)
