I looked in 0.9.5 stable and I still miss some kind of /takeover 
function. The problem of my daily (admin) life is this:

I get a PC and need to include it into my domain and install a basic set 
of programs, I'am responsible for (i.e. Thunderbird, Antivir).

On some PCs this software is already installed, so it doesn't has to be 
installed again, wpkg should simply note that package in the wpkg.xml as 
installed. If this is not done, wpkg says "installing software" every 
time it starts.

For v. 0.9 I wrote a small patch with a /takeover switch for the 
commandline (which is in the Bug Database of wpkg). That patch didn't 
make it into the stable release. So how could this be realized in the 
current version? I'am a bit out of sync and didn't follow the development.
