Look, I have already stated on this list that I will not create such a  
system - I will certainly contribute again to the community but not  
under this form. And hey, there are some here with a lot more  
expertise in package management systems than I have...

Besides, if some are interested in improving the situation (for which  
I'm very grateful) why shouldn't I raise criticism on what they do ?  
Especially given that the batteries included path was already followed  
once and failed.

I think your initial question intimately shows the limitations of  
batteries included, what remains outside batteries included will still  
be "hard" (in the sense harder than it should be) to publish and use  
and batteries cannot include everything. Hence my comments about  
solving the problem at another level.
