Agreeed, but 99% of the bundling effect comes from those
scripts that do all the grunge work of setting the system up
after the programs are in place.  RPM dependencies may
not be a great way to tie everything together but I think
it should be sufficient and a lot more versatile than
cutting a new ISO image for every combination of distributions
and packages that someone might want.  You could, for example,
add client/server LDAP configuration packages or change most
of the things that have many-step HOWTO's on the wiki into
a single install command - and it would be automatically
maintained for everyone with changes in the respoitory.
