What I see you do here is try to come up with some cases that I'm not sure
will really fit the needs.

 * What I think would be nice would be some framework to add/remove
   snippets of text from various files.

   Example: hugelatex
   install teTeX, then hugelatex needs to add a few lines to a config
   file, and rebuild some files. So far, no problem. But if you install
   together with other TeX-pkgs (jadetex comes to mind), there's a problem
   with the order in which to add things. A framework that could identify
   the parts of a file belonging to a certain pkg and upon that add/remove the part would
   be nice.

 * Serious: you may want to have a look at the SuSEconf framework. I think
   they have what you want.
