What power do you think Recipes are lacking for developers? It fits very fine
for my needs, even for cross stuff. Please talk more about that.

You can use the cross-compiling feature of Compile. To do that, just install
your compiler at a given prefix (say, /Depot/Cross/x64) and create a file
called /System/Settings/Compile/Cross-x64.conf. To use it later, just call
"Compile -c x64 <program> [version]".
Give a look on Cross-ARM.conf to get an idea on how to create yours.

Performing checksum for installed packages is not that safe. One can have
compiled a program with different switches, or even modified some
config/script files. This can be done for binary packages downloaded from the
site, though -- given that the user doesn't change anything inside it.
