If we can get a vgaue consensus on what it is that should be sourced, I'd 
love to accept and integrate such a contribution... as long as people who 
don't have something set still get their DB updated. Having one set of 
packages everyone can use, and no one needing to build, is high on the 
list of things the project has tried to do.
