Sorry that I didn't reply to this.  I wasn't 100% convinced that this
was a good idea since some of the packages show up as having problems
when they are ok.  I was wondering if that would end up generating more
(understandably) confused mailing list traffic but I guess, in the end,
it probably is better to check the validity of the packages for the
prescribed error reporting technique.
