But what does a classification with every single package gain you?
(Including libraries?) What's the usage case?

Right now, we use comps as:

- An input to a graphical package selector

  Adding everything here is likely to make large portions of the UI
  unusable. 

- An input to tree composition tools

  Adding everything here, as long as it's all 'optional', is likely
  to have less effect.
