I appreciate your 60 seconds of research, because your original response wouldn't have led me in the direction of RPM. You seemed to be suggesting 'your OS native package manager', which for me is MacOS Installer (likely to be changed in the near future, as the death of the Xserve gives us little hope on the continued viability of MacOS Server)

I'm also not particularly a fan of the ham-fistedness of most package managers -- yum, darwinports, fink and others just love to install alternate versions of perl and update every last module to the latest version, which has shot me in the foot a few times. It's also possible that I'll need to support Windows in the future, so RPM still doesn't look to be the ideal situation, only a stopgap.
