I checked a fresh trunk image, no nils in the package organizer.

I was looking at the debugger for it again and noticed PackageInfo
handles the nil system category as never yourself... it's the subclass
MCMockPackageInfo that doesn't do the nil check.

That discovered, I still think putting a short circuit return in
PackageOrganizer makes sense.  If nil means 'not me', why spend time
