Multiple package managers on one distro?
This is, of course, not a novel idea, but I haven't seen it done much. Some distros support installing software with multiple package managers and I know that this is, to a point, possible on all distros, but it is usually that only one package manager is a default and recommended and using anything else implies a level of risk of breaking something.
However, would it be possible to design a distro on which you could have two or even more package managers which are equally stable and safe to use, which are all basically "default" and "recommended"?
Or to push this even further, could it be possible for it to support *all* package managers that exist?
I guess for this to work a distro would have to be designed to be completely package management agnostic allowing the user to choose which to use themselves. Such distro would, I imagine, be totally standards based, putting everything in standard usual places while still leaving a workable option for alternative structures in which other package managers usually put stuff..
Anyway, I thought about this when writing this post so you can put it in that context if you wish (experimenting with new distro ideas as part of our own distro sub-project).
If you've got any thoughts feel free to share.
