I took the responsability for this... task :-) late in the slink release
process. The files were still those from hamm and, worse, there was no
automatic checking of their consistency. And they didn't work on non-i386,
which I regard as an important bug.
I did not work on it since slink was released. I'll be happy to let someone
else take it.

Before hamm, such profiles were loudly requested by newbies: with RedHat, you
could choose such profiles, with Debian, you had to navigate through dselect.
With the 2200 packages of slink, they are certainly not useless!
