The problem is: Where do you stop, which flavours are the most
interesting ones? Shipping all permutations of with(out) perl,
w/o tls, w/o mysql, w/o Postgresql, w/o LDAP and w/o exotic
Each flavour requires about 300KB mirror-space (i386) and considerable
computing power by the buildds.

Suggestions for decision-making are welcome.
