Huge thanks for this, Matthias! I've finally gotten around to building
& testing Einstein under OpenBSD and I love the ease of installing
prerequisites packages directly via Einstein.

My suggestions for essential packages would be:

  - In addition to supporting importing/exporting Dates & Names, it
adds a "Put Away" option to InOut for packages that one has downloaded
via Courier (e.g. from UNNA)
  - <https://sourceforge.net/projects/n40hz/files/IC_VC/IC_VC-2.6/> (I
clearly need to get newer versions up on UNNA)

Kill Update:
  - Removes the "Update" option which tries to dial Apple for system patches
  - <http://www.unna.org/unna/utilites/patches/killupdate.pkg>

Prefs Patch:
  - Fixes partially scrolled close button in Prefs
  - <http://mirrors.unna.org/www.softwarebueromueller.de/englisch/newton/ppatch/ppatch.pkg>

Daylight Savings:
  - Allows adjusting Daylight Saving settings in Prefs, which is
required since they've changed over the years
  - <http://mirrors.unna.org/www.softwarebueromueller.de/englisch/newton/daylight/daylight.pkg>

URL Helper:
  - Supports adding URLs to people & companies in Names
  - <http://www.unna.org/unna/utilites/names_enhancements/URLHelper2.1/url-helper.pkg>

IO Select:
  - Adds "All" button to InOut
  - <http://mirrors.unna.org/www.softwarebueromueller.de/englisch/newton/ioselect/ioselect.pkg>

ED Select
  - Adds "All" button to the Extras drawer
  - <http://mirrors.unna.org/www.softwarebueromueller.de/englisch/newton/edselect/edselect.pkg>
