This could be accomplished just as easily on any webhost and is  
certainly not going to be triggered by a system administration  
utility, though by this logical thread Ubuntu had better get on with  
removing Quanta and anything that makes a complex and possibly  
dangerous process easier.

Not including these things is of course not going to hurt anything of  
course. Some people will use a howto to set it up, some people will  
manage to get it working good enough. People that have no interest in  
either will use another distribution which does include them. Of the  
three I would rather they use the other distro; they're probably  
safer, but it doesn't do much for Ubuntu advocacy.
