but instead of having to discern the list w/no relationship information
well, this passes by the fact that
a) comps.xml doesn't have this concept of minimal
b) comps.xml IIRC has a completely different understanding of "base"
than what I just said (the minimum self-consistent set of packages that
give you bash)
c) there are distros mach is used for that do not have comps.xml files.
So, sure, I can use comps.xml. It's just that it doesn't give me
exactly what I need in these cases.
