This is completely out of topic but you are asking the installation of 
new packages to be without side effects, I would say this is similar to 
functional programming, and in fact there is a software development 
model, and a linux distribution, called nixos, that are centered on 
purely functional package *deployment*. I did not have the time to 
understand it very well, but it's on my TODO list.
