You could be right.
Back to topic, we don't need a new package system for binaries, the
ones out there are good enough. So for a 'new' package/build system we
could safely ignore all those people out there without any development
tools and instead focus on the people out there which have a full
features linux installation (with gcc, etc.), but which build only a
very little number of packages themself (for example just the kernel).
