One thing I'll add here (now that I've checked my GitHub messages) is
that the conary folks have been *really* helpful in my efforts to get
it bootstrapped on F22:

So I'm still reserving judgment here, even though I'll be using conda
as my near term example of the kind of end user experience I think we
want. Being able to share tech between our backend and frontend
tooling would certainly be nice if we can manage it.
