Perhaps it would be better to extend the package object so that it can hold a slot that can designate it as internal or external. Quicker could provide a trivial system that would export this package extension. I think it would be useful for other documentation systems, as well.

Ooops, I didn’t mean to say package, I meant to say system.  Sorry for the confusion.
