It looks useful, but starts to be complex, messy and too much features.

The features that I would like to have for PDA binary
packaging is:

0) Package information, (name, desc, deps, suggests)
1) Install
2) Uninstall
3) Update=Uninstall,Install

Not so needed features:

4) postinstall script
4.1) preuninstall script
(5) preinst script) Might not be needed

It might be cool that PDA can download all needed packages like apt-get

My template project does satisfy feature 1, and installing will be done
from PC. But creating binary tarball with some more information (feature
0) and making a very simple package installation and removal utility
(features 1,2 and 3) would be nice.

Best Regards ...
