I'd like to see something similar to FreeBSD's "pkg_create -b name"
to make it easier to create packages from already-installed packages
(which could then be taken to another hosts).

The point here is EASIER to use. I know it's possible to do this
with the current version (I've read the man page) but I'm too lazy
to type several switches :-)

I'd like to hear comments (sounds good / don't waste your time on this)
before I start investigating how difficult this is to implement...
