Maybe it's a detail, but I'd like to emphasize on the UX: I find
Synaptics very poor (in fact it's not much faster to use than the
command line.

I think it's important to have live fuzzy search, range selection,
queued tasks, etc.

One of the best GUI experience I had with a package manager was that of
Antergos: I think it was called pacman-xg4.

We can also re-use the good ideas from emacs-guix.el and helm-system-packages.
