I did not suggest any machine learning or AI?  Also, how can a machine
fail here?  The computed partitioning might not be optimal, but as long
as we're careful with search paths and its not overly suboptimal, any
partititioning would do (in the sense that it doesn't ‘lose’ packages
or invent packages oout of thin air or something).
