Not at all. Many other packages uses a curses-based system to force users to
read and confirm a message while installing.

I didn't say the ideal is reachable. The point of ideals is to provide a
target, not to be the only solution acceptable. Debian can do better, even
if it can't meet the impossible goal of perfect usabiliity.

For a netbook?
Again: the goal is get *closer* to the perfect experience. Nobody (certainly
not I) expects to *be* perfect. Don't say "Since it isn't possible to be
perfect, we'll just be terrible." The current system is better than terrible
... but it is bad.
