idea for ubuntu studio

I know this would be much more intense to setup than just a meta-package,
but it might be a thought to look into setting up a second partition or
install that's configured as a production LAMP.  Maybe this is also possible
to do with just a single partition/install, but I would be careful about
security (can apache be configured to just respond to local requests?).
This would allow much more web development in server-side scripting etc...

As for suggestions for the Metapackage (if there's time to build one):
cssed - graphical CSS editor
gphpedit - development environment for PHP/HTML/CSS
kompozer - Complete Web Authoring System
gftp - X/GTK+ FTP client
agave - colorscheme designer for the GNOME desktop   (i know the
ubuntustudio-graphic already includes this, but it's quite useful for web
design too)
drivel - Blogging client for the GNOME desktop    (maybe not, but it's
lightweight enough)
Would it be possible to include flash/java/etc... support?  I kind of know
the answer already, but I feel these are somewhat important for a web
development suite so the issue shouldn't be ignored.

If the op could suggest what troubles they've had configuring their
development environment, then more could be done to help.
