Now that you mention it I reckon it can be read that way, indeed.

But no, my real fear here was a tool more in the cpack kind. Years ago we
had packagers trying to get their stuff in by using cpack. While it might
be of some help for non official packages it was not really fit for
official ones.

Kyle has made it really clear that they intend to support the various
realities they will probably face if people start using it everywhere to
create good quality packaging, so yes, I also applaud the effort... now ;-)

Cheers, Lisandro.
