I think this is a *FANTASTIC* idea.  If you can find someone to write
the code -- probably no more than a lightweight Python app -- I'm sure
we would be interested in doing editorial.  (And I know people around
here could offer tips as well.)  Given that FC6 is likely to include
additional repo support directly in Anaconda, including Fedora Extras,
there doesn't seem to be any reason this type of application couldn't
live there.  Maybe there's justification for a new Extras comps group,
or something to make this and other helpful bits prominent in the
installer.
