I know this is slightly off-topic, but now that you bring this up, I always
felt that the removal of roscreate-stack was overkill. If it's worth
anything, I think it should be brought back. It doesn't need to deal with
dependencies, but it's useful just to not have to copy the CMakeLists,
Makefile, and stack.xml from a stack I've already created.

One important thing I'd like people to keep in mind when discussing the
install behavior is that most ROS development environments have tons of
non-installed packages. The package semantics were really designed for that
use-pattern and it would be unfortunate if installation-behavior changes
diminished the speed and flexibility that the uninstalled stack/package
semantics provide.
