Runs to completion on 14.04[1], debian testing, debian stretch, debian
jesse[1], and raspbian.  I also tried removing a couple of packages on
14.04 to make sure they were reinstalled.  I do miss seeing the list of
items that is being operated on by each rule.  For example:

ok: [localhost] => (item=[u'libqt5core5a', u'libqt5webkit5-dev'...

Maybe you could leave in your current message and add one for the qt5
packages?  If not, no worries.  When ansible can't find a library it
still spits out the missing library name.


[1] These versions of ansible are old enough that their list of
acceptable values for the ansible_pkg_mgr variable doesn't include
'dnf'.  It won't run at all unless I patch out those references.
