ipkg is based on dpkg, it's more lightweight.
Don't get me wrong, we need package management, it's just that I've
owned Windows Mobile phones and there's been no easy way to install
software when using Linux. Getting a reliable sync solution that
works on Windows, Mac OS and Linux is quite a big piece of work and
while this is in development it is handy to have an alternative.
I'm also wondering how we are going to achieve installing
applications on the SD card, have a lib directory and bin directory
on there and add these to the paths?
