Wouldn't it make more sense to use the SYSv pakgadd format?
The whole package managin system only has USL + AT&T Copyrights in
so it is easy to be put under GPL by SCO/Caldera.
The benefit of this idea is that then we could have a uniform
packaging system for all UNIX systems which really could make
system administration much easier.
