so why not use apt?

i mean, we could build on top of apt to do something "more" cross platform.
Debian (and thus apt) already handles multiple architectures and
"operating systems" (well: kernels), so we just need a few others archs:
- w32-i386
- w32-amd64
- osx-i386
- osx-amd64

this would of course mean porting (parts of) apt to w32/osx (and i have
no clue how much work *that* means)
