Hi all

We have been discussing with colin about the next step for packages and 
Alex is working on introducing a real package class (with a lot of 
information/annotations) and he is building a new package centric 
browser on top of OB. He will release that soon and ask for feedback 
and help.
  I think that having a good browser and real packages (supporting 
comments) and supporting package renaming are the preliminary to be 
efficient curving packages out of the image. So we are getting there.
