It's quite straightforward to add new sizes to the configuration files
by hand, and also to make the the default size. Therefore it doesn't do
much harm when this has to be done by the local admin.  

And from the point of view of writing packaging scripts it isn't hard,
either: I can simply ignore sizes not available in the upstream scripts
(should I give a warning on stdout?).
