I woudn't hold my breath (yet).
Packaging systems are barely mature enough to offer satisfactory support 
simplified use cases like single ABI (Linux package managers) or single 
programming language (Cabal, Maven, SBT).
Throwing in mixed-language support can be made to work easily (even 
Maven does this, in a half-assed way), but making it work well is still 
a "need more experience" topic.
