uh..what would we have to tradeoff? generally i've always believed that
if you think things over before actually implementing anything, nothing
is impossible.

We are talking about linux distrobutions here (for the most part, afiak)
so apart from file system layout and different versions of software,
going from distrobution to distrobution is fairly standard.

What would we loose if we pushed for maximun portability?
