Elixir is a project by Firas Durri, Robert Deaton and Andrew
Sutherland (wp-elixir.com) that is setting out to be the ultimate
plugin manager for WordPress. It will basically duplicate all the
features available to package managers like RPM and That Gentoo One
(which I can't remember the name of right now :))

Along with it's plugin counterpart, Alchemy, Elixir will allow for
one-click install of plugins (and themes?), allow for dependancies
etc. (i.e., WP-DB-Backup could require WP-Cron), as well as
automagically handling updates.

Oh, and it'll do away with chmod, too. :)
