I don't have the context of the original suggestion handy.
Has anybody suggested that the "tool" simply supports externally-defined
package sets? Then, any number of configurations can be defined and
offered in distributions, web sites/archives, etc. The DEITY team needs
to provide a general capability and not get into the battle of actually
defining the packages.
Of course, the tool would help as expected by ensuring dependency
ordering and "all that".
