the tabletop_objects package isn't available anymore with 'roslocate svn',
but the wiki page is still alive at http://www.ros.org/wiki/tabletop_objects

>From that page, the functionality looks really useful for a project at work.

Is there a pointer available to the package? If it are just build problems due
to changing APIs, I could give it a try. I've already installed the postgresql
database as described at http://www.ros.org/wiki/icra_manipulation_demo

On the other hand, how useful would the billiard_object_detector package
be for general object detection?
