How about dedicated servers? It would be nice if I could select "LSB Core"
and "Bind" for a dedicated DNS server. I wouldn't need X or any other GUI
for that, do I? And because I installed a LSB compliant system, I should be
able to add another package to add functionality (a FTP server to load my
zone files for example).
