To be usefull for developers,  jhalfs must be keeped as closed as possible to 
the books commands. If the book includes PM support, jhalfs will include it 
by defalt. 

With the current Bash&XSL-based code, to add a PM without having a base 
support in the book might need very intrusive changes. Plus, if the case that 
the selected PM need estra spec files for each package, who will maintain 

Yes from a user point of view PM support will be very cool, the question is 
what to use and how implement it without breaking by-the-book builds.
