I really like the idea of this, I think it has alot of the same concepts of
the Linux Standard Base http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_Standard_Base in
terms of portability, but I don't think a universal package type would be
probable or practical. I do like the idea of writing a "controller" program
that does all the functions needed by a service and then allows each
community to simply code the "view" of each to tend to their project by
calling functions/methods or by passing the controller commands.... a good
resource on this would be the model-view-controller design pattern
