The DragonFlyBSD-people want pkgsrc as their package system, and an
ongoing discussion about that brought up this:

> Nobody said anything about adding stuff to base.  I think a package
> manager even should be implemented as a self-bootstrapping package.
> Otherwise it's really hard to update the package manager itself on
> release branches etc.

So a "meta-package" for pkgsrc or alike... sounds at least interesting
to me, what do you think?

(sry if this is the wrong place...)
