Relocatable packages so a user can do an individual package install into ~
without being r00t (this may be possible now with some dpkg foo?).
The ability to install more than one version of a package simultaneously.
Some intelligence for handling multiple machines. Like the ability to nfs
mount /usr and have the package manager understand what's going on.
Oh, and a postinstall that'll do not only a diff on conf files that have
changed, but allow for a merge as well...
