A quick look at some package repositories

When I visited Python's cheese shop today, I stop for a moment at the total number of packages. This raised my curiosity to look at other languages' package repositories.

1. Perl (11643)
2. Python (2392)
3. Ruby (1587)
4. PHP (442)

Well, I am not making any conclusion out of this, because there are many other factors required for an analysis.
