                     18: Instead of including install scripts from the infrastructure into every binary package, just include the necessary information and split the scripts off into a separate package that is installed first (right after bootstrap, as soon as the first package needs it).

        !            23: * demonstrate pkgsrc packages which add users, etc
        !            24: * Also add support for actions that happen once after a big upgrade session, instead of once per package (e.g. ls-lR rebuild for tex).
        !            25: * convert some existing packages to use this new framework
        !            26: * allow options framework to configure these resources per-package

                     28: An intermediate step would be to replace various remaining INSTALL scripts by declarative statements and install script snippets using them.
