Without being able to reuse each other's packages - or indeed break
ones own application into multiple packages - I suspect the "MeeGo
Extras" process is going to fail:


However, it seems that Intel & Nokia in their ivory towers are
concentrating on app stores and single-package applications which
include all their dependencies. I can understand why, given the lead
that Android (and iOS, but let's at least pretend to be slightly
realistic ;-)) has, but it seems the MeeGo Spec is going out of its
way to sabotage community efforts.
