I don't have the time to do much more than glance over it, but it looked OK
to me. I particularly appreciate the concept that this can stay hands-off
to real hand-installed applications, and probably should have done it that
way in the first place.
Since this was the last remaining unfinished goal of xpkgwedge, I suggest
naming it `1.0' once it has been tested and approved by several people
(particularly on systems that were already using the old xpkgwedge and pkgs
installed by it).
