Similar to ruby gems or perl cpan or even texlive tlmgr. Ideally, a user
should be able to do:
package-manager search "keyword"
and get a list of modules and
package-manager install "modulename"
and be able to install the module (without updating the whole
installation). Additional niceties like
package-manager make "module"
for preparing a zip file that can be uploaded to contextgarden will be
ctxtools does provide the last functionality, but you need a tpm file for
that, while tlcontrib wants a module to be submitted without a tpm file.
