what about using cfengine to maintain an external file of packages, such
as:

  /etc/packages.allow
  /etc/packages.deny
  /etc/packages.update

and then have your module read this, only to make the decision if
something needs to be done, and finally call (possibly the same script
as the module with different arguments) from shellcommands. This way
both the data and the logic is showed inside the cfengine framework.
