This was actually the goal of Amber project https://fedorahosted.org/amber/wiki/Definition. The project stalled for almost a year. Then I wanted to join and take over  Amber development but we decided to better move the features into  pkgdb and work together.  

I also like the original Amber mockups (I believe they were created by Mike Langlie). You can see them here http://mbacovsk.fedorapeople.org/Amber/mockups/.
Any feedback is welcome.
