But look at the trend in distro sizes, they aren't shrinking.  Why not
install everything in extras at the same time according to the logic of
trying to dodge missing deps.  And maybe Dag or Livna too.  The whole
idea doesn't scale, and make needless load on the update mirrors as well
as the increased security perimeter.

You might decide for one box for you this is okay, fair enough: but its
an architectural decision about having the button and different
considerations -- like, "is this going in the right direction" -- are
called for.

Turning that around, how, as you imply, does installing everything help
you to decide to run a new program?  Apropos?
