Is there really a need to try to compete with OS-specific or OS-agnostic PM's?

For Erlang PM (which is being discussed here), why not limit the scope
to erlang-only packages & deps?

E.g., Java PM's (Ivy, Maven, Ant) focus on Java code, don't they?

One of the key benefits of building / designating an "official" Erlang
PM would be ease of use of | conversion from a variety of existing
Erlang-specific PM's/build tools.

In other words, "the Erlang PM" would install 90% of Erlang packages
in the wild, or ideally from a central repository.
