I don't like that last idea; if you're gonna do something like this,
I think it'd be better if it were done, somehow, as part of the
installation of each package. My reasoning is that "after everything
is installed" is end-of-life of the machine, since critical security
bugfixes keep coming out for many popular, in some cases, at least
arguably, "best-of-breed" server components.
