What does this do better than apt4rpm/smart or apt debian packaging systems?

The weakness I see with our existing systems is that you need to do some kind of relinking, ldconfig, SuSEconfig, etc. to get each package to actually take and be show up ready to use. It would be nice to have a packager that contends with dependencies while making the installation seamless per environment.

In any case, I'm not really sure why we are talking about 0install after reading the article. Cheaper, faster, better--- No offense, but which one is it.
