Agreed, but if you go back to earlier versions of FreeBSD they gave
you an install option for just binaries, or binaries + sources, or
binaries + sources + X Windows.
I am proposing something similar once again, but this time if would be
enough of X, a small window manager, and Firefox so a basic windowing
environment was able to be installed, from the CD, with a single
choice. I doubt many developers are really browsing the web all day
