The thing we are missing is some sort of agreement on what the server
spin should be: I think everybody agrees that the minimal install you
describe should be possible. The question is: what does the admin do
afterwards ? If they install whatever they need over the newtwork why
bother with a server spin to begin with ? We can just fiddle with @core
a little and give them a kickstart file that produces the minimal
install.

But what about a customized comps file ? Is that desirable for a server
spin ? Absolutely; and to arrive at that we do need to talk about
including TurboGears and lots of other packages that people use on their
servers.
