As will I.

My intuition is we'll need orphan detection/elimination; I'd forgotten
about 0install, and should not have.  That, plus the limited flash, is
what has made my opinion we need dependency information, and whether we
call it a package system, or it's hidden under the covers, is
irrelevant.
