I know that there was some talk of releasing an empty clear package but
I don't see how that would be useful. If I do that then we stand the chance
of eliminating clear.exe when the clear package is "updated", meaning that
we could conceivably remove the clear.exe that ncurses installed.
I think the only thing we can do is remove clear from the distribution.
