It makes sense, as long as all the involved distros make that
information and the set of patches theyr'e using easily available on
the net.

I like the idea. We should define a lot of things to make it possible,
but it makes a lot of sense. Maybe we should try to contact other
distros in this early stage to see if they want to become involved in
its design?

Definitely yes :)
