Rust's cargo [1] is indeed well thought through (I like the dependency
specification especially [2]) and we should look at it in depth during
the design.

We already have a very detailed technical thread, that's why I'd like
this thread to remain on the naming aspect. The rust folks chose
cargo/crate for their package manager vocabulary. I think we should also
put some effort in it, although I don't see the need to find synonyms or
other fancy words for package management.
