Before people get too angry about this: Software is being designed as a
tool to do what's being discussed in this thread, i.e. install things
that actually count as 'Software a user might want to install from a
tool for installing software'. It doesn't have a monopoly on the
Graphical Tool To Install Things space. The old gnome-packagekit
installer still exists, and you could still work on that. yumex still
exists, and you can work on that. All desktops and spins and so on can
choose to include whatever graphic tool(s) for package installation they
see fit.

The fact that Software is being designed to do a particular job does not
preclude anyone from working on or using alternative tools designed to
do different jobs.
