Mpm is the MiKTeX (an MS Windows distribution based on TeX Live)  
Package Manager. Since some months it works quite well to compile it  
on Mac OS X. Before it was available for some Linux distributions.  
Somehow it works to install updated packages from CTAN. See http:// 
miktex.org/ and particularly http://www.miktex.org/unx/. It seems to  
be versatile enough to install a new package in a handful of  
different TeX installations on the same system ... and it even might  
be able to update each of them! So one would not need anymore to  
download 100 MB+ for a simple update.
