Additional package command options will be added with the following subcommand syntax:
package create ;pkg::create
package mkIndex ;pkg_mkIndex
Each represents the existing command that is commented. The arguments to each would remain what the current command takes.
The following old commands could then potentially be eventually deprecated:
