Looking at the massively disparate interfaces of the multitides of linux

I assume not. Given that no two VST UIs seem to work the same way, it
would appear not.

I think we can stay out of trouble even by providing a package
management system that isn't the disto's.

I'm asking you.

I'm not proposing LASH become a package manager but that it uses a
package manager.

Sorry, the question was obviously ambiguous. By "normal" I meant that
the automatic package installation feature would be disabled.

Complete package management isn't within the concept of session loading,
but package installation is.
