It's relitivly new in the linux world. Maybe a year or two old, but it is in 
the top 10 distros listed by distrowatch.org It's source based with a package 
system called portage that is something like a cross between BSD's ports and 
Debian's apt-get.

(which is kind of the point of install manager IMO)

I might do that. And I was more thinking of making like starter packages. 
Basically a package that had a couple different versions in it (if the 
language had more than one version), some commentaries and a dictionary or 
two. Something like that.
