Regarding package design, I'll toss in something that I've come across a
few times when converting existing code.
The release docs for the SGraph package state that the sources can only
be redistributed in an unmodified form. I've tried to contact the author
about waiving this requirement but haven't been successful... so for the
moment, we're stuck with applying diffs before the compile/install.
I'm not sure how often this will come up, but it would be easier to deal
with if the packager could run a pre-install script (like rpm and deb)
that would automatically apply the patches.
