Ah yes, I think it was Jorge that mentioned that.  And it's a good
idea, too: it streamlines the patch process for tag updates and it
gives us an idea of what sorts of things users find important for
discovering packages.  But because the proposed solution is so simple,
we can handle that later pretty easily as long as we agree on what
we're doing up front to actually enable this.

Cheers,
Wyatt
