See bug 315171; there's been ideas floated in this space for a while,
but there just haven't been people with time to take the ball and
run with it.

If there are people on this thread who want to tackle these sorts of
thing and have the time to do it (I think we've sort of conclusively
proven that the base development & packaging people don't, unfortunately),
I'm all for it.
