This can involve tedious trial and error.
Maybe I like the app, maybe I don't.
If I like it, I want a convenient format in which to remember
the required packages, automate their installation,
provide convenience when building machines.
If I don't like it, I'd like to remove the packages I installed.
Buildout does this for eggs, and tarballs via cmmi, I want the
same convenience for system packages.
