How about a totally different approach. Pretty much like the currently
nokia-binaries have a unique url
would it be possible to create "per" user repositories on the
maemo.org server and have some tool virtually merging
different repositories into this personal repository.

The rationale would be that you could do most stuff "online" and that
you can make your "application installer" even more simple. not
worrying about
all those sections etc. You could also possibly reflash your device
and get all the apps you had back.
