Hmm, in that case, I'll try and refactor code from packages.php into two 
different files. My goals:

- Separate code from package.php into pkgsearch.php and pkgdetails.php
- pkgsearch will have everything that current package.php has.
-- you can search for packages, adopt/flag/disown/vote/notify multiple 
- pkgdetails will be strictly for the package details, including comments
- the problem with this is that current programs depend on this, but 
hopefully an rpc is being worked on

- Work on the login timeout issue. I want to eliminate the need for a 
timeout altogether, as I don't see the point of it.
- pkgsubmit process should include the submitter in notify list
- package owners shouldn't be allowed to vote.
- delete multiple comments at once

Dunno if i'll get all this done in 2-3 weeks, but i'll try :x

- tardo
