Who doesn't want package management? That is to say, who doesn't want
some of the drudgery of handling ever-complex software installs handled
by the machines, especially if it can be done in a safe, reversible way?
Or would they claim that that such a package management program cannot
be made, or more importantly, can't be made securely?
Just curious, really.
