Should we consider a new directory to put these downloaded packages
without any authority? Sometimes new packages have .so files. I don't
think it's proper to handle them with authority. If some bad packages
injected or substituted other common .so files, it would be dangerous.
Anyway, guild-hall is open for anyone. 

GNU Powered it
GPL Protected it
GOD Blessed it
