I don't like people who wants regulate everything because they think they are 
gods and they know what's good/bad for people. You, as administrator with root 
priviliges, you're the one who should say - this package is OK for my family, 
this is not... Same for TV regulations - you have remote, you're the best 
regulator!!! When I was young, my parents locked living room if they thought I 
have enough TV or there's something wrong they don't want to let me see. One 
month ago I've read interview with Czech broadcast regulation office boss and 
it was wonderful - he said - Internet never was intended as free/open medium, 
we have to regulate it (we is Europe Union) as companies broadcasting over 
Internet have advantage over that regulated. Isn't better to not regulate them 
instead of regulating Internet???

So please, prepare these packages, put them to the repository (not default in 
comps) - if there's good summary/description, it's admin/parent
