1. If the purpose of the "package" is to provide a *single 64kb file*
in a common area, to be only used by other DD to remove common files
from some webapps, then I guess this is a wishlist bug.

2. If the purpose of the package is to provide functionality to the
end-user, (eg. developer using package to write new software) then it
does not do so.

We are suppose to provide *usable* software to the *end user*. Not
just an index of usable software that is available from 3rd parties.

If the 3rd party remove the project tomorrow, then where does the user
get the documentation? Where does end user get documentation if the
3rd party documentation host is unavailable? Blocked? Or in 5 years
from now? 10?
