Expose Sub-packages

It would be really cool if I could add multiple dependency packages to a package as sub-packages so I could ship one package that contained all required packages. 

I can currently do this with a .vipc file, but love the idea that a package could do it.
Another good reason for sub-packages over .vipc files that I forgot to mention: .vipc files currently have to be installed in the same version they were created. For example, this means that to support multiple versions of LabVIEW for a package release, I have to add multiple .vipc files if I want to include dependencies + package in a .zip release. 

To start with I don't mind if its not exposed through the UI - as I would more than happy to do it myself with hooks. 
Backwards support for OGPB would be nice too.

Since VIPCs can now be installed on any LabVIEW version. Is this still a requirement?
