The reason I asked was that we have had a lot of discussions of package
system within Cendio Systems (the company I work for) since we have
noted alot of problems with existing systems, like:
* they must be compiled on the goal platform.
* the point above makes cross platform compilation impossible
* problems creating dependencies that you need a or b to install this.
(or atleast alot of packages skip handling this.

We have also made some prototypes of new package systems. One of them is
used in a project at a customer.
