Very nice Mariano!

If code is small and nice (I'd bet it is), this should be part of the 
base Cuis image. Looks like a fundamental tool to me.

The only thing I'd change is window color. Maybe we'd pick a new tool 
color, for this PackageInstaller and the Installed Packages tool.

WRT to GitHub, I see the value, but the base image contains no network 
code, and is agnostic wrt CVS choice. Maybe a button "also show packages 
on GitHub" or such, that loads a separate package to deal with GitHub?

In any case, let's make this part of the base image!
