Of those, I like "bag" the best to represent a package that can be a
"mixed bag" of scripts and compiled code. My second vote goes for
"bundle," which is also something quite intuitive for a package. The
remaining ones take a bit more think time (at least for me) to map to
something package related.

I did not get the "bagger" and "bagboy" variations until I googled it,
probably because I'm not a native speaker. However, I like the grocery
bag association, that one stuck immediately. We could have a shopping
"cart" as well, to represent a collection of bags. The grocery store
theme works really well, in my opinion.
