My idea was a single place to access GIS modules for scripting
langauges. Where "single place is" website + search engine +
taxonomy of available modules, but those modules are not copied/mirrored
but linked, so the engine only needs to "know" where is what.
Indeed, it's a very similar concept to the table, but I'm talking more
about the CPAN-like form.
Just a brainstorm.

Yes, that's the idea.
