Honestly I do not know anybody who is using vagrant boxes without any
additional configuration.

All people I know messing around with them. So I think having minimal base and
allow users to build on top of it is a good thing.
I also have to agree that having base minimal box and multiply boxes with
different provisioners is having lots of sense; only problem with it may be
maintenance overhead but as Jan wrote this can be overcome with automated
build process.

Marcin, who is a heavy user of vagrant at work as well :-)

Either ansible via its vagrant provisioning should install aptitude or via a vagrant plugin (or just use shell provisioning in vagrant).
Besides the fact that its completely silly design that the apt module depends on aptitude, the problem is upstream and it shouldn't be included in any base images.

In Chef, we've been going naked for a long time now :)
