I don't see that a packager would have to interfere with the way RO works.

There is already the resources folder containing common resources.

If this also contained all apps that are used as resources by other apps, would this not fit the requirents?

These apps themselves could be launched from a simple appdir that checks for the presence of the app in resources, uses the packager to fetch it if it isn't, then runs it.
