I think we need exactly 1 profile: clueless Windows-users wo haven't
used linux before and don't really know what they will do with it. All
others won't use the defaults anyway. Come on, folkes, people who have
a squid proxy or do number crunching wilk know how to partition.

For this profile I suggest:

max(64, min(128, 2 * RAM))	swap
rest				/

I really cannot see why splitting / would gain anything to the casual
