scientific meta packages set.  I guess the debian-med package might
be a reasonable example to suppoet all features, especially because
the biological part should be ready.

I understand that it would be _too_ difficult due to the quantity of
science-related packages, but from a begginers point of view, it
wouldn't be so much a bad idea.

Well, I think *because* of the quantity we need such a collection
of scientific related software.

Another very reasonable approach is debtagging the scientific
