I hope that by the time OS2007 comes out, two things will happen

* all of the useful and tested packages will be uplosded to the Garage
  repository (repository.maemo.org/extras)

* the Garage repository will be added by defaul (possibly disabled by
  default, so that clueless users don't have to care about the multitude
  of unfamiliar app names, half of which require command-line access)

Then package installation is just a checkbox away (and maybe a dialog
could ask you if you want non-Nokia apps the first-time you start the
app manager).

C gives you enough rope to hang yourself. C++ also gives you the tree object to
tie it to.
