In the whole discussion about package tools I want to point out
that there are other possibilities:


Open Source (LGPL), parts are based on libcurl which is already in the dist
included.  I built successful libcomprex and leakbug with shared libs and I

It sounds very 'modern', they use RDF (XML Resource Description Format).
It is a young project, so it should be possible to take influence to do the
right thing from the beginning.
