6 A package manager that supports a better binary package format
7 (split out local metadata would be a good start) combined with a third
8 party binary provider could deliver that with no tree changes. Heck,
9 it's even doable with Portage's binaries, although according to a
10 Gentoo-based distribution that tried it, your 30 minutes would be
11 optimistic for -uDpv world...

15 Funnily enough... That one can be done without tree changes too via
16 something we're calling reparenting. There're some vague suggestions of
17 roughly how to do it at [1].

23 Probably not, but they could be a lot closer to it.
