Track CrossDistribution Devroom

I wrote Distromatch, shall we use it?

At the AppInstaller2011 meeting I started writing Distromatch which is able to map binary package names across different distribution using a wide set of euristics.

Distromatch has the potential of being a radical change in cross-distro cooperation, enabling exchange of package screenshots, categories, ratings, reviews and many other interesting kinds of metadata.

Since distromatch has existed for almost a year and (afaik) so far none of this has happened, I am taking advantage of the cross-distro room to show how it works and discuss how to move on from here.
