Sounds good, but when you say "install fragments" do you mean manifest.xml and mainpage.dox? 

Why don't you just roll this roslocate capability into rospack which already handles ros packages? Wouldn't it round out the capabilities for one utility which handles packages?

I don't use roslocate, so what is the use case for this? I see utility in getting the vcs info, but the other stuff seems nice but not useful.
