Fair points, I hope I haven't implied that Eggs isn't good enough as
just an execution format, I said right at the start of my first email
that I think Eggs is very much needed and will be extremely useful and
I'm quite excited about using it for my software.

That's true too.

I'm still tempted to have a go at writing a package manager around eggs
for my software so might just give it a go for interest.. eggs have so
many useful features.. I agree though that as a serious solution you
would need to arbitrate a serious amount of discussion to please everyone.
Thanks for your answers anyway, much appreciated.
