Some lawyers claim that you have to be fully aware about a contract,
before agreeing to it. There is some logic in this of course.
We may have just followed the standard example flow here,
there is certainly a possibility to improve it.

Some users demand several installer variants, of course this causes software 
creation/testing costs because of the variants in the interaction workflow.

Installation for most users is a process that is rarely done. However it 
creates the first impression. Form the development side we right now try to 
focus more on the maintenance and next would be to improve the operations
that are done most often. 

We still appreciate all feedback and try to collect requirements
and possible improvements! If you want to discuss this in more details,
we coordinate on the -devel list.
