"One of the reasons this won't happen is because of rpm
fanboyism, as you have clearly demonstrated, so "we" shall remain a
fragmented group of fanboys."
It's a pity you ruined an interesting post with a personal attack. I don't think that asking for particular information as to the specific advantages of a system that I'm largely unfamiliar with, and correcting your mistaken impression that there are few rpm packages is fanboyism. I agree that a single packaging format would be useful in terms of reducing apparently duplicated effort.
