We don't have that, but we should. Imma let you finish and not hijack your
post to talk about that. And IMO we should continue to assume we don't have a

We have packlists, so we can easily map a distribution to its files.
The reverse mapping can be generated from this, though this is
relatively expensive.
Packlists are unreliable and have design problems. Some perl distributions
(Debian) disable them. I wouldn't build anything around them.

PS Sorry, I didn't mean to change the thread subject. I wound up writing my
own post.
