I don't think that will ever happen. I regularly use three *nix
systems and each has a different package management systems and I
don't think I even want a unified package manager.
Tools like setuptools, zc.buildout, etc. seem great for developers but
not very good for distributions. At last year's Pycon I think there
was agreement from the Linux distributors that distutils, etc. just
wasn't very useful for them.
