right. though i plan to keep simple-cdd backportable to etch, or
maintain a backported branch for as long as reasonably possible.

ah, yes. this is a good idea.

i wanted to keep the "default" profile handling as similar to other
profiles as possible, with the main difference being that the default
profile always gets installed- this is why there isn't much in the
default profile.

you might be able to get what you need by creating a simple-cdd.conf,
and profiles directory, building and installing the simple-cdd package,
and running /usr/share/simple-cdd/build-simple-cdd from the directory
simple-cdd.conf is in, and replace the profiles/default.* with your
preferred defaults. build-simple-cdd will grab anything missing from
/usr/share/simple-cdd/ when run this way.

i'm open to ideas and patches of other ways to handle this, though.

live well,
