comment Making a Mathematica package manager?
I'm totally in to help with this. I'll start (resume) lurking in the Mathematica stack exchange chat room when I can.

comment Mathematica package manager
I also have a start at github.com/mathematica-packages/mpg, and have been sort of waiting to see whether there was even enough interest in the idea to justify more effort. Starting to look like there might be enough interest for this to work. You use mine by saying Import["https://j.mp/needs-mpg"], or if Mpg is already installed, by saying Needs[Mpg``]. It doesn't really do much yet, but I'm really proud of the bootstrap story.

comment Why can't an `Import[]` change $Path?
There's no way to ninja out of a block, right?

comment Why can't an `Import[]` change $Path?
I'm creating and deleting files and directories in my Imported file, so if it's a security measure it's impressively poorly designed. It feels more like there's some "specialness" to the context that the Import is being evaluated in.

comment How to programmatically replace an expression in a .m file
@RolfMertig, good point about init.m being a possible source of confusion. But what do you mean by non-portable? It seems to me that an init.m file is exactly as portable as its author makes it.
