Hi Daniel,

Thank you for clarifying the topic. 

About the split up, is there a consensus in what to install exactly ? See, 
the user will install all the packages related to video drivers and dexconf 
will do its job and it's up to the user remove what is not needed ? I'm asking
about Debian, because i guess that in Ubuntu you'll autodetect as much as
possible in the install and just keep there what's necessary maybe using a
different approach if the user change his video card, plug a new input device
or whatever.

Closing, what are the side effects (if any) that this split up and
modularization will
put on the loop for stuff like lessdisks and ltsp ?
