Hence the "impossible" tag. Having attempted to install a bunch of
groupware servers on a machine, I'd agree with you that More Research Is
Needed - but having a tag that tells you "you only want to do this if
you are a wizard" will at least ensure others don't try without fair
warning :->

Yes, I just like the idea of being able to filter on multiple keys
simultaneously. easy + ( end-user | corporate ) you would expect to
install, say, the Mozilla packages, some kind of LDAP support,
DHCP-clients, and so on.

Better than 0!
