Is there already a webmin frontend to apt? I think webmin does handle 
the configuration side of things (well, more or less. I can't really 
comment on it as I don't use it.) So if there would be a package 
installation webmin plugin, that would handle package installations 
(and automatically add webmin-... plugin, too), the missing link would 
be that the user has to know to install webmin-serversuperduperwizard 
and start a web browser to get the wizard.[1]

I see there is webmin-software - perhaps this already does parts of 

Just a random ideaon hitting my brain cell.

at the point where tasksel/dselect is offered, offer this too and 
automatically start a session in a w3m/links/whatever window? (Except 
that webmin is probably not exactly textmode-browser-friendly...)

Money isn't everything -- but it's a long way ahead of what comes next.
