The other thing is, it is extremely tedious to have to package source
code in a large number of different formats, depending upon the
operating system. It would be really nice if an XML standard for
software packaging could be agreed upon. Then all a maintainer would
have to do is write the package content descriptor XML file once, and
run the packer command for the specific operating system.
