In the past weeks I have been working on a new framework, called KPackage.

applications to use it should implement a little plugin for the package

and the Package class will offer an api to access files from it
there is also a simple little tool called kpackagetool that can be used to
install, remove and list packages.
I would like to submit it (kpackage repo) for the usual 2 weeks period of
