Linux "GoboLinux is a unique distribution in many ways. It's built from scratch following the Linux From Scratch procedure and uses custom boot scripts, personalized directory structure, and a simple yet comprehensive source-based dependency-resolving package management system. GoboLinux is perhaps best known for its alternate filesystem hierarchy. Unlike Linux's traditional Filesystem hierarchy, where a program has bits and pieces scattered in several places like /etc, /usr/bin, and /usr/share, each program gets its own directory tree under GoboLinux."

You can use the Zero Install feed format without any of the funky hash stuff if you want. It just lists versions, where to get them, what they depend on, etc.

Here's an example of a program with several available versions, all of which require the ROX-Lib library (View Source to see the XML):
