I can understand the need for an OS, but do we really want to "distribute"
different packages. The binary we deliver, have quite a lot of options for
configuration.

I admit, that I think a lot more in reducing the compile switches (a la,
this is our binary, all compile options are solely for our
developers/testers)....if a compile switch is usefull to a user, it should
be an option in the program instead.
