PPM: package installation bugfixes

Shinobar has done some excellent detective work here, fixing some problems. The main one was the mode where a package gets written direct to the "save layer" bypassing the working tmpfs layer in RAM:

bulk petget
Is there a way to install packages silently? petget displays two dialogues one to request confirmation then another to report it's done.
Indeed 'petget -h' request confirmation then then happily reports 'h has been removed'. In fact a bulk installer which ask for confirmation of installation of a list of (local) pets then reports success and restarts jwm would be ideal.
