To be honest -- I'd love to. I suppose you want Python -- this is fine 
with me. It'd be great to start from scratch, but be aware that 
developing/maintaining package management tools leads to endless pain 
and suffering (I assume you probably know that already:)).

So, we can set up a git repo (and a component in bugzilla) and start 
working on some "next-generation package management tools".

Although I do not see any problem with "shell-oriented" config files. 
They are easy to edit and can be easily read from any code (be it C or 
Perl or Python or whatever). So, can you be more specific and tell us 
why you don't like such configs?

Finally, I propose to move the discussion to devel@ list (to'ed). If you 
agree, please reply to devel@ only.
