OpenSolaris Installation and Packaging

It's here! Dave Miner made the announcement that the Installation and Packaging community, and the SVR4 packaging project are now up and running.

This is important stuff. Being able to install and manage software is a critical component of an operating system, and is something I do a lot of.

And the process - particularly the performance (or lack thereof) of the tools - could stand some improvement. Yes, they work, and they're solid, but with a bit of extra work they could be made better.
