 If we go that way definitely runlevel 5 for it is just like what we
have currently: Everything enabled.

 How would you expect it to behave?  If it's not installed it can't be
run.  The rest that is installed behaves just like it should behave in
5 anyway, that is e.g. with less virtual consoles.  I am not sure if I
grok your question really....

 So long!
