But there are far more urgent questions that don't get asked at install
1. Which editor to use at the default editor.
(Even worse: emacs isn't even included in the install by default!)
2. Which shell to use as the login shell.
I still have to install my favorite shell (zsh) manually :-(
3. Which web browser to install. Not everyone prefers Firefox.
4. Which mail user agent to install.
I can go on. All have to be chosen after install and I don't think
there is a good reason the init system should be special: likely a
larger number people cares more about the software they use all the
time. So if anything, one should probably ask about that.
