Is this supported at some level today? I fail to find where I want the
packages installed so I assumed the package system would already have
some logic to where to put them.
I should really look at the code I think in order to understand this
better. I know to little how it works now (maybe because the problems
of getting it to work at all but I'm working on that.)
The real problem is what if the user has edited packages that get
overwritten? That would suck massively[TM].
Can you have the cake and eat it? I guess the package system then
needs to install new downloaded packages in a new place where no user
modified packages can exist. This way we won't overwrite the users
Now I though that xemacs-packages and mule-packages would be such a
place where users should not modify the code. Installing a sumo tar
ball would have the same disastrous effect!?
