Then install the default. Install all the default packages, and then
sort through the other 1600 to see what else you need. There's no need
to look through them all at install time.

Perhaps the installation should only install the basics and not run dselect?
My only problem with that idea is that it means I would have to install
emacs and then remove it, rather than before it is installed :-)
