I think Tim should get an account on build.o.o and try it out... It
does help to have everything in one place.

When I'm done with the Trinity base, we can test it and see how it
works. When I'm done wrestling with that (very soon), I can check out
the external packages and see if other major distributions have it in
their repos, ( and ftw!). They should
not be that much different. If they don't, we'll have to come up with
a solution.
