Hmm. This page:

        http://www.netbsd.org/Documentation/software/packages.html
        
...says that there are "over" 4000 packages in NetBSD. That makes 3.5%
or less of the total package set "powerful". Kind of surprisingly close
to Debian (3.9%+)!

Now things are getting kind of intriguing. I want to know about *BSDs,
weird Linux distros, whatever you got. It'd be interesting if things
stayed around 3-4%. There might be some kind of universal power
principle at work here.
