I'm sorry to disappoint you, but when I wrote "it may be achieved", I meant that I don't have the skills to program such an engine and that I leave it as an exercise to the reader ;-)

However, I can imagine that after a first run of latex, one should be able to decipher the log and know if packages are missing, then dig into the tmlgr database to check whether the required packages are available, install them with tlmgr and re-run latex.

That's easier said than done, but let's hope someone on the list  may be able to implement it...
