Thank you for the idea and encouragement, but I remain "anti-ports."  I
don't see any good in a process whereby the user must download all in order
to, if he or she wishes at a later date, only install or "activate" a
handful of those applications.  Why work from the base of the pyramid to
the tip?  That's just my rant, sorry to burden you all.
