I see, so Quarks is really mostly about managing unstable packages, rather than stable ones. I think that makes it more of a tool for developers than for regular users. In fact from what you describe it seems to me what you really want and need is svn itself and a shared repository, and all the Quarks classes really add is an SC interface and easy uninstall.
That's not what I'd thought was the intention, but if that's what the consensus is for then so be it.
It would be nice at some point however to have a package manager for regular users that allowed them to deal with stable packages (tested against the current point release) and that worked out of the box. Perhaps Quarks could be extended to do that as well as the current functionality. I may look at this when I have more time.
For now I would suggest not worrying about extending it for 3.2, as the binary + extensions bundle approach should be fine for most users.
