Doubt that. This is the fourth time this discussion has come up on this 
list in the past few months. Each time it has generated more e-mails than 
any other topic. It was bugzilled and closed as not a bug. Probably right 
as it's not really a bug it's a usability feature.

I did an install yesterday and it took the entire day to get the 
"everything install". Do the base install selecting as little as 
possible, configure the yum repos, do the everything install, do the 
updates. I'm thinking of a few months time when I have to install 200+ 
machines. And I need the everything install because I can't tell a 
student what environment, Gnome or KDE, to use what browser, mailer etc 
to use. 

It was a useful feature.
