So that means that installing to HOMETEXMF would not be supported?  Another option would be to just install with cabextract as I do now, and track the installed files via the .tpm XML files that are then created.  Tracking dates would be the only tricky part there.

I meant preferences in Mac OS X terms (checkboxes, paths, etc.) to be set in a panel.  Install location, mirror to use...  I haven't played with mpm for a while, obviously.
