Hi Neil, you want to check out the 'define' keyword in the puppet 
language doc. This way you can have a definition like "my_pkg" pass it 
some options, and all the magic to set it up can be done inside the 
define. I don't currently have an example because I package most of my 
stuff in .debs and put it in a custom repo.
