This proposal doesn't seem to me to have any chance at all of getting
accepted.  While you might not like the EDB installer, at least those
folks are active in the lists and accountable for whatever problems
their code has.  Who in heck is responsible for the "homebrew"
packaging, and do they answer questions in the PG lists?

ISTM a more useful response to the problems you've mentioned is to
suggest to the EDB folk that they'd better install somewhere else
than where the built-in Lion installation is.
