The EDE part or CEDET is all about developing projects.  I'd be willing
to work with you to have it "create" projects/packages appropriate for
an Emacs package system, since CEDET itself would want to take advantage
of such a thing if it were made a part of Emacs.

Of course, this implies that Emacs packages are built w/ EDE's project
system, which some consider too heavy-handed.
