Not directly or immediately. And certainly any changes I do suggest will
be done in a backward compatible fashion..

There are some things I believe we should be able to do with
1) Detect cross-package conflicts. Say foo and bar both contain
2) The lst files are currently gz' files, I think it would be good to
change to using bz2 in the future.

Doing the 1st one really requires a more database orientated approach --
long term of course.
