Woohoo, thats great news Gary. Thanks for working on that.

Can I add a couple of notes: So that if you find yourself making design
choices, you know where I'd *like* to see this going and can have that
in the back of your head. (I'm not expecting these to be accomplished
immediately :})

1) The chooser will eventually need to be able to be resizeable.
2) The chooser eventually needs to be able to have a subchooser popup
(and be passed a sub-selection of packages) to allow users to choose
what packages to use to satisfy a dependency/what to eliminate to avoid
a conflict.
