The thing is, it used to be not an issue on Debian, either, where you
could just deselect the tasks and say "Please give me the horribly
confusing list of all available packages, and I'll make my own
selection". It might be nice to bring that option back, but only in
expert mode, or so.

The biometric identification system at the gates of the CIA headquarters
works because there's a guard with a large gun making sure no one is
trying to fool the system.
