    Some pre/post installation stuff seems needed.
    What about install-info, for example? Maintaining
    $(infodir)/dir seems not possible by just using

    $ tar -zxvf package_name.tgz

    in a dedicated dir in /packages/

My idea is that a special file handler would implement
the info directory file.  Implicitly it would do the equivalent
of install-info, on all the installed info files, to produce
the virtual contents of the dir file.
