pretty good summary

The 2 things I am working on is the dependency system, which  
introduces meta-information for all of the modules / themes / blah.
And then there's the changes for the db api, namely db_create_table,  
and db_add_column etc. functions.

Along with individual module directories and install files, this  
_could_ drastically improve how much maintenance db schema's and the  
like take.

Additionally, it makes all our distributions the same. When we build  
install profiles, they will just happen to ship with a different set  
of directories.
