I'm currently working on that.  It seems that one of the main reasons
cited for why linux is not ready for the desktop is the lack of a
cohesive gui config system.  The creation of fedora will hopefull help
the user community develop a unified gui config system that is available
GNU/Linux wide.

That is my feeling/hope.  The use of nevral is much more elegant that
the apt cache.  I've been looking into how to put together some sort of
kludge to convert the apt pkgcache into a nevral.
