Solaris 11's Bobcat

Here's an interesting little thing a colleague noticed in Solaris 11's pkg verify -v output...

$ pkg verify -v library/ncurses 
PACKAGE                                                                 STATUS 
pkg://solaris/library/ncurses                                               OK
	file: usr/gnu/share/terminfo/b/bobcat
		Warning: package may contain bobcat!  (http://xkcd.com/325/)
$

This is perfectly harmless and only visible when using the -v flag.

Seems we have some Solaris devs who like xkcd :-) Lets just hope the humour police don't complain and ruin all the fun... techies like this kind of stuff.
