No, but I can't imagine it would be that hard to write one.

No no, you'd have a address@hidden/configs--main--0
containing files like:



The contents of those files would look like this:

./              address@hidden/pkgsrc-framework--main--0
./devel/stlport address@hidden/devel-stlport--main--0.1
./multimedia/gstreamer  address@hidden/multimedia-gstreamer--main--0.1

And actually if you have the invariant that there are no two packages of
the same name but in different directories (in the devel and multimedia
sense), then you can just drop the package directory from the tla
category, like:

./              address@hidden/pkgsrc-framework--main--0
./devel/stlport address@hidden/stlport--main--0.1
./multimedia/gstreamer  address@hidden/gstreamer--main--0.1

You can use changes in each individual one to get changes for that
package.  Robert Collins has a config-manager which I think can
recursively do changes.
