While I've argued a little for the usefulness of 'everything', what
I really think is needed is a simple facility to allow anyone
to 'share' their current configuration.  That is, anyone who
has installed a set of programs that they consider useful for
some particular purpose should have a push-button-simple way
to export the yum repositories and list of rpm packages so
that anyone else could duplicate that exact setup with a
single command or equivalent push-button.  Also to clone
machines, you would do a miminal install - just enough to
run yum and this automation package or even better make it
work from a bootable CD and do a complete install to match
an existing machine.  Then we need to have a few dozen experts
upload their lists along with a description of the purpose
of the machines.
