Very cool - looking forward to this.

I think this is a really important thing for the community. Something
that was discussed recently on this list was improving the "discovery"
of packages, applications and libraries for use in projects. In
particular, the idea of searching for "something" based on type specs
and/or other metadata was raised, which I thought a very good idea.
Erlware and CEAN 1.0 already provide search capabilities, so perhaps
this is something that can be considered for the mix.
