Looks impressive. I stopped using the  package management system; too much trouble and not enough benefits, but I still use scripts that are based on it. I will look into yours; maybe I can learn from it.

Another interesting piece of work on this subject you can find at https://github.com/ericherman/package-users.
There was also a discussion on this subject on this support site about two years ago, initiated by Drew Ames.
