Of course it would be a daunting task, and to be honest, creating a new package manager to solve the "too many package managers" issue is kinda dumb. That reminds me of this:
But I think it's important to make a difference between a dev package and a end-user package. Dev packages are updated often and should be installed quickly with ease, for this, languages' package managers are neat. But using them to install end-user softwares seems more like lazyness (they just don't want to package a .deb and a .rpm) than anything else.
Got it, but isn't end user software already packaged by distros? Command line tools are not exactly end user software, unless the end user is a technologist who would know how to operate a command line anyway...
LOL at the xkcd strip, so true
