I could do this, and I think this is a valuable job to do.   If the job
will spend a lot of time which goes beyond one people, I could ask help
from others in the mailing list.

I have notised that Debian 3.0 is frozen, so if you agree, I could start
on Debian 3.0, once  all the packages inside Debian checked one by one,
then we could start to other major commercial distributions checking.
I think finally the index or a diagram could be developed.
