that's exactly my point.
though i believe that if there is a good-enough selection of server
software included in main, creating some meta-packages for installing
and pre-configuring these packages would be a good starting point.

experts are still free to choose their prefered applications and
manage everything "by hand", but any user wanting to set up a simple
web/mail/whatever server could start by just installing a
meta-package.

also, i think software like webmin[1] is a very valuable tool to have.
