In concept, I like the idea of simply extending the “install” command to be 
able to install from a source or binary packages, but how would the package 
update process look like for users?

E.g. with the bundle/unbundle the update process would be:

# On source machine
$ bro-pkg refresh
$ bro-pkg update —all
$ bro-pkg bundle

# Copy bundle to target machine

# On target machine
$ bro-pkg unbundle

With that approach, the user never has to consider individual packages so 
updating is still straight-forward.  But with the approach of being able to 
install specific versions of packages from a source/binary distribution, how do 
you make it simple for a user to update to newer versions when absent an 
internet connection?
