I remember asking this question some more and looking into, at Stefan's
suggestion, ipkg. Whilst it would be a very good idea, it would be a
large amount of work both to get it first set up, and then to maintain
it, say when importing new versions of uClinux, as we would be diverging
from the (rather crude) upstream system. I would have taken this task on
had it not been for these two set-backs, and the fact that I have become
increasingly busy elsewhere in the free software world.
