;;; Commentary:
;; Provides `emacs-modules' function that searches for and displays known
;; emacs modules that when selected are downloaded and installed.
;;; Installation:
;; Put `emacs-modules.el' where you keep your elisp files and add
;; something like the following to your .emacs file:
;;   (require 'emacs-modules)
;;; Usage:
;; Call `emacs-modules' with a module name, or with no parameter for a
;; list to pick from.
;; Example:
;;   (emacs-modules "ibuffer")

;;; TODO Outline:
;; - write background fetching apps to get lists of available el packages for download
;; - check list versions against installed versions and highlight ones that are outdated
;; - put this one at the top of the list if it is outdated
;; - list modules from local saved data file
;; - background loader updates saved data file
;; - store code to download, unpack, install, compile, etc in lisp data object
;;   (list), so no new functions need to be made/altered with new package
;;   logic
;; - after loading a new version of this modules, you should be able to exec
;;   it and run the main function
