I don't agree with the idea of hard-coding some particular package management 
into jhalfs, but that is a feature that could be requested by the users at 
any time. 

Then, I was thinking to add a note to the README in the line of "I you want 
support for a specific package management approach, please feel free to write 
and maintain a patch adding that support and send it to us."

The master script could be a wrapper to invoke the modules. Actually the 
common code may be some functions and configuration options. The idea is to 
use a unique command name instead to have a different one for each book.

That wrt_xxxx functions could be a good idea if they could be reused for 
several modules ;-)

Well, backing to the LFS indentation now that I have again some spare time..
