there are flaws aplenty, unfortunately :-)
At the moment, its functional by virtue of a side table. The table
is.. incompletely populated.
The reason being, it doesnt allow collisions... which means, it does
not allow all packages to be registered,  because there are
But it at least works, for packages that have successfully been
entered into there.
How things work now is;
At package registration/"batch" time, the contents of the package get
inserted into the table.
if there are collisions, then it fails insert, and I throw the package
back to you :)

If you wished, I'd be happy to give you a mysqldump of the table or something.
