I've added a bit more information, such as the dev.local domain definition. I want to union the packages, not replace them, at the less generic level.

In my case, this is a base class, which all nodes will apply. I apply basic things, as you saw above. I want curl and wget, less, bash and zsh, and a ton of other things which I'd like to keep up-to-date. What would you recommend I do instead? A class per package? That seems excessive.

As far as I know, the autorequire has been there for a long, long time.
