.dsl means a .tar.gz, which writes to other places than just /opt, /home, and /tmp. It's just renamed to .dsl.
.uci is a clooped .iso, the concept is similar to .tar.gz - only write to /opt, be self-contained.
.unc is also a clooped iso, but it can write anywhere (using unionfs).
So, there are two main types of packages, and one unionfs/cloop variant of each.
The main difference between unionfs and normal is smaller ram usage in livecd and frugal environments. They cannot be "permanently" installed, they have to be loaded on boot to archieve that effect. .dsl and .tar.gz can be installed permanently to HD installs, and .tar.gz can be installed permanently to frugal if you have persistent opt set up.
There's no such thing as life. Those mean little jocks invented it ;)
