"ZeroInstall
        This is a cool toolkit (includes kernel patch) for Linux which
        does just this in that it makes cache and installation the same
        thing. Totally transparent swapping in of stuff on the Web. very
        nice. What it doesn't do is manage what diskpace you have
        allocated"

I tried zero-install myself the other day... got it working
on my debian sid box by following the
directions (including one or two documented work-arounds).

I'm thinking of making cwm available thru zero-install.
It's a python program.
