But less useful, going by the historical record.  The various breweries
are already producing their products, and I may find new favorites by
discussing them.  But discussing what an installer should do is useless
unless somebody implements the ideas under discussion.  I'd be happy to
see any manner of improvements to/over sysinstall, but not enough to
implement them myself.  [Not even close.]
