That is probably what I would do too. And then you could rename
"Jacaranda" to "Jacaranda base" or someting and make the load script be
named "Jacaranda".

Also note that these issues (installation of prereqs) will change in
both SM1.1 (in which you can make load scripts that refer to specific
package releases) and SM1.2 in which I plan to implement a dependency
resolution engine making it possible for SM to "figure out" what
packages to install based on dependencies.

Yeah, I know. Hack, hack... :-)
