Scheme packaging systems rush

In his post Dominique Boucher informs that author of Bigloo Scheme created new packaging system. Another one, because there are already several packaging systems: Snow, Chicken Eggs, PLaneT.

What is a packaging system and how is it different from library support ? Packaging systems are engines to distribute libraries automatically over network, to help resolve dependencies and library versions.

For me, development of packaging systems is not a nesessity for Scheme. Currently even basics of working with libraries is different in Scheme implementations, all those (require), (import), (load), (module) and so on. Probably, automatic packaging is good, but it’s too early. I will not use them myself, I will download sources manually, store them manually, and reference them manually
