I could explain my idea better, but you got it wrong and improved it a lot
:-) instead of a different package set, you could just patch the install
disks to be able to look for the base.tgz somewhere else over NFS. So the
site admin can choose what _he_ thinks is a basical workstation setup.

This is important. If this policy ever gets adopted, you have to note
somewhere that /var/lib/dpkg _must_ be NFS-mounted.
