I Think that changing the package manager to anything other than rpm 
will require a serious change in the core of the distribution. It would 
also add a lot more work right off the start because of the new tools 
that would have to be created or incorporated into the project. But 
please don't get me wrong i'm not saying its not possible. I would love 
to (someday) see a distro which asks me during installation which type 
of package manager i want to include, with option "None" amongst many :)
