Cool, many thanks!

How did you generate the diffstat?  The numbers indicate a lot of
preliminary work before running the tool since a simple diff returns
numbers along the lines of -1000/+1500.  So I'm wondering, do you have a
list of important packages (like, say, ocaml, inetutils, any libs) still
missing?  It might help to get a better picture of the state of the
x86_64 distro.
