I agree it would be nice.  Not sure how hard it would be to implement;  
maybe it would be best to have a mode of installation, say if one  
wanted 'minimal' (no optional module installation, no scripts),  
'full', 'dev', (assume minimal install but don't test), and so on,  
falling back to the query-based approach if nothing is indicated.
