These are specific things that can have improvements made which is a lot
better than "bring back individual package selection" :)

If you could file these (either against comps, installer, or
distribution, it doesn't matter much to me :), then I'll look at what to
do for the specific cases.  For the SQL case, I'm thinking about
splitting into a postgresql and a mysql group since they both have a
fair amount of associated stuff.

The goal is definitely not to get to that level, but at the same time,
there are a fair number of things which it just doesn't make sense to
ask about.
