I have no use for installing packages.
There was also no mention of that package manager doing something like
deps either (nor do I want it to: booting the Erlang VM to then call
"git clone" is not particularly efficient, and efficiency is important
for my workflow).

Unfortunately in my case I will have to keep maintaining a separate
wheel because I do not want to boot the Erlang VM for these things.
