Wouldn't the solution to that problem be some sort of automatic package builder which takes in
one input package and produces about a hundred packages for all sorts of distributions and
I mean, I'm not sure I agree with the problem definition you've given, but it does seem that
most of the commercial software I've tried for Linux works that way rather than working with
packages... So, the solution to that appears to be to make it easier to produce proper
packages for every distribution, rather than producing a sorta meta package... doesn't it?
