I like the idea. It would solve several problems. From this kind of base 
anyone can do work on his own ideas and packages. I think the number of fixed 
packages would increase a lot, because every package build on a base like this 
fulfill the needs of the packager in the first time and the hole project too.
Severall people with several interests will build several more packages ;)
