AFAIK, Apple only changes the .pkg format on major releases. Looking
over the release history of Pacifist ( http://www.versiontracker.com/
dyn/moreinfo/macosx/12743 ), it appears that he only needs to update
package handing for major releases.
While it's not perfect, it does keep stuff simpler. You should also
be able to hook into the installer command-line utility and need to
use fewer wrappers.
