#13545: Implement a Tracker Add-on to manage the installed packages

------------------------------------+------------------------------
 HaikuPorter automatically stores the package name to every file in the
 package as an index:


 {{{
 listattr -l /boot/system/apps/ScummVM
 File: /boot/system/apps/ScummVM
          Type       Size  Name                                Contents
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
          Text        16  "SYS:PACKAGE"
 scummvm-1.9.0-2
          Text        28  "SYS:PACKAGE_FILE"
 scummvm-1.9.0-2-x86_64.hpkg
 }}}

 It means, one can develop a tracker addon to easily remove the unneeded
 packages.

 The process would look like:
 - user click on the file
 - goes into RMB menu
 - Add-ons submenu
 - Manage Package

 It would open a window, where one can read the summary of the package, and
 there would be a button, to remove the package.
