If you're not already using it, cfengine would be a great tool to build this
around.  Each package would only need to install a chunk of cfengine
configuration, which would be included in the main system configuration.  In
fact, each "configuration package" could be reduced to one cfengine config
file, plus whatever auxiliary files are required (config templates, etc.).
