Ideally, yes.  I guess so many of us have single-user systems that
this point tends to get overlooked.

Now you are talking about a program to be executed by each user that
lists a series of possible configurations for each application and
allows the user to choose one.

This truly would be the best way to make Debian newbie-friendly.  Now
all we need is someone to write this thing (or to find and improve
this dot file generator to which you refer, if it exists).
