But they really don't.  If anyone starts e.g. jumping off their
windows, it's no excuse not to try *thinking* before doing things.

Scott, I think there was enough "con"s for doing that, here too.
I have yet to see a *single* sane "pro" (meaning, not "aa-a-a!
wa-a-a-na it tha-a-t wa-a-a-y-i-e-e!" -- answered "grow up").

Distribution makers *can* have their own point of view, reason 
to do what they do, and even habits.  There are so much of linux
distros because the people are different.  If someone likes
Red Hat approach of big dumb packages and full default installs,
so be it -- let them stay with Red Hat.  It's just fine.

We've learned that....
