Since my script uses the epm package manager, the possible package 
formats can basically be all those that epm supports (which include e.g. 
slackware, BSD, osx, Solaris, AIX and others).
On demand those could be implemented, too. But I guess many have already 
written similar scripts for themselves, so maybe there's not much need 
for it.
