a steb-by-step howto and including config files for current release will
make it quite easy.

this would be good to have because
- easy to implement now and have it in FC3 
- needed anyway for all other approaches? One needs to know the
difference from default setup to a prepackaged configuration, and it can
be seen from the step-by-step docs.

perfect "out of the box" would be hard I think, as user might need some
custom configuration changes. With step-by-step, he can learn about the
system and adjust settings along the way.

why not? One person will maintain each prepackage config docs, as one
maintains a rpm now.

yes, and doable now. If we aim for an  out-of-the-box working config,
it'll take several releases to have it working properly. Let's keep it
simple, this is an excelent step forward!
