I assume that you'll format the exported and imported packages in the  
same manner as BND in #1?

I would have a drop down box to the left so that you could enter in:

- imported packages
- exported packages

in addition to the Symbolic Name.

It would also be great if one could trace the wirings to help discover  
where conflicts lie.  Maybe this would be a different screen but I  
think that tooltips that showed the wirings would be pretty helpful.

I imagine the status would update automatically via some kind of comet  

Again, very nice!
