bspm: Bridge to System Package Manager

Enables binary package installations on Linux distributions. Provides functions to manage packages via the distribution's package manager. Also provides transparent integration with R's install.packages() and a fallback mechanism. When installed as a system package, interacts with the system's package manager without requiring administrative privileges via an integrated D-Bus service; otherwise, uses sudo. Currently, the following backends are supported: DNF, APT, ALPM.
