Perhaps the word 'force' was a bit harsh, but it's essentially how it works 
for an end-user.  It seemed to me that you were suggesting that the standard 
installer should be optimized for embedded systems, which does not sound like 
a very good idea.  These systems have many specialized needs which cannot be 
easily accounted for.
