It might be worth for interested parties to look at the "Smart Package 
Manager," written in Python and can be used in conjunction with the Debian 
package tools, i.e. APT, DPKG, etc.


If we ever go down the route of using APT, which I think we should, now 
that I look at it more and more, the Smart Package Manager could be quite 
a worthwhile tool make use of, it also fits perfectly well with our 
overall goal of using Python related scripting;

The more I read about what is available out there, pkgsrc and ports make 
look like the Dark Ages.

Chris, you might want to have a look at the above URL too, since you were 
also interested in Python based package solutions.
