I'm not sure I get your logic. Lots of the bugfixes (which may only be
one or two commits a month) come from other distros. If I didn't make
it generic, then there would be no possibility of running PackageKit
on Suse, Debian, Ubuntu, Arch Linux or the other PK supported distros.

A better, more architecturally sound design.
