I get your point, but what are the chances of new iwads comming out? We need to
only take into account iwads which _might_ be packaged. So for prboom that would
be free-doom and doom-shareware. For vavoom it would be doom-shareware and
heretic-shareware. If people have registered versions they will need to install
them themselves, we can't provide packages for thus we don't need provides
doomxx-registered-engine. and besided the shareware versions and the free
versions I don't know of any other iwads, but that could be me.

Hmm, after doing a search I've found many interesting conversions, but these are
all pwads and most don't have a clear license. Still lets assume some have an ok
license, how do these fit in?

About your other comments, I tend to agree with your simpeler solution (which
would make my comment above void) but I'm not sure yet, I need to think a bit
more about this one.
