Yes - however people go about doing this, whether it be modifying apt,
or creating a ports system from scratch (I agree that the first is
better), they should *do it*, then create a bunch of lists and other
crap.  Software doesn't come from lists, but from people opening up
their emacsitors or viitors and actually hacking.
