No, there are already too many package managers.  We have the source code
for their installer, which uses RPM.  We have hundreds of packages
available, even more if we convert dpkg into rpm.  We're starting this
distribution with rpm, and that's the way it's going to have to stay for
the rest of it's life.  TTYL!
