We had a good discussion in the Bro Gitter channel about this
yesterday. In fact, I suggested "bpm," but as it turns out, there
exists already a package that installs a PREFIX/bin/bpm executable.

To summarize the discussion: the sentiment was that calling things
"packages" is the least unexpected from a user point of view, because
many other package managers (e.g., Python's pip) also use the term
"package" for script and compiled code.
