Hi all,

I’m a newcomer of sorts but I would like a programming abstraction over 
profiles. It feels like some requests for better cache file state handling, 
declarative user services, and declarative user packages could be gained. Plus 
I think profiles are still maybe the most confusing thing to a newcomer and 
they are not explicit in the configuration.
