I'm a bit embarrassed on how late I am to this party. Thanks for
putting this together, it's great to see it consolidated in one place.

I'd like to add one propose property: frameworks can't depend on other
Otherwise I think we'll very quickly have re-invented apt dependencies
along with all their problems.
It'll also force them to be generally self-contained and with a more
concrete purpose.

(I do think an app can depend on multiple frameworks, though, just
keep a flat level of dependencies)
