If we are talking about a package management system (a way for the
end-user to install more packages):

> ChangeSets

not a package management system. It's a format to exchange code.

> ScriptLoader

private/internal way to manage the update stream. Should not be
visible to the end user.

> Monticello alone

does not allow loading of projects with dependencies on other repositories

> Monticello configurations

I don't know

> Metacello

+1 but we need a place to put Metacello descriptions

> Installer

+1 but we need a place to put Installer scripts (Sake/Packages)

> Gofer

I see it more as a backend for Installer and Metacello
