This seems like a good idea.  What tools would have to change to make this
work, and could we make this change backwards compatible?  For example, if
you move the preload and postload code to the PackageInfo subclass then you
could leave forwarding code behind.  Tools wouldn't bother displaying the
forwarding code if they saw the PackageInfo subclass, but would keep it so
that older versions of the tools would still work.
