I had a Debain package install script.  In order to be useful you needed 
to install nothing but Debian packages.  To be complete it would need to 
convert the metadata between packages.   It should also be  a dpkg 
replacement.  Then installs could be handled by apt-get but viewed Gobo 

The script is at: http://www.calica.com/gobolinux/InstallDebianPackage 
if anyone wants to play with it.
