This goes far and beyond what I am trying to do here even if it might be a nice
feature. There many nice features but if we start working in this arena the
main subject, which is the auto-installation itself will lag behind.

Such features should be solved with scripts which match your need. We cant
automate everything, well, we can, but this needs more time, more developers
more more. If you miss such a value added, and non-core feature, and you wish us
to do it, contact our sales department ;-)

Our feature list for the future is growing from day to the next, but we have to
focus somehow :-)

People should start putting their scripts online like Christian Stoltze :)
