I believe most people have thrown their view in 
to make sure that using the existing solutions have been considered
very seriously. Of course it is perfectly nice to try to write something
better or something just for the fun or the heck of it. :)

I've heard that first Meego handset releases could actually be relabled Maemo 
variants, which still have .deb package underneath. But again:
If you have a vision for a nice package manager and it is fun for you to 
write: Just go for it! (And thanks for keeping us in the loop. ;) )
