I'm not sure if the meaning was changed in this. The intension is to
stress that deity is not just a package manager. The ui specs that I saw
lead me to believe that it also will manage user, groups, ... and whatever
a package wants to add to the list (network config, apache config, ...).
So, we are back to the point that it needs to be a sysadmin tool. Going
with the recursive definition, we could have ?npm for "?npm is not a
package manager" (the question being what we want the first letter to be).
