Oops, hit the wrong reply button. My first paragraph is in reply to ajb, my second could apply to both.

You propose a common API to be used by RPM, deb, Perl/CPAN, Ruby/Gems, Python, and all the others?? Sounds like it would be pretty much impossible to agree upon, much less have everyone adopt it and debug it.

That common API is called PackageKit. At least for the distro-style packaging systems (I'm not sure if anyone has tried to integrate it with per-language systems).

Your mileage may vary.
