I dislike that route intensely.  Why, I'm not sure.  Perhaps
because it encourages ISVs to manage package updates themselves,
perhaps because it smacks of the complexity of Microsoft's MSI.

I'm more interested in the single-click install idea Suse's
working on, since it's much less of an end run around
normal Linux packaging practices.  And I have a summer intern
to throw at the problem, so perhaps I'll make some headway on
it.

Can we move followups to packaging lists linux-foundation org rather
than cc'ing all those lists?
