What about having ubuntustudio-audio+ubuntustudio-desktop rebadged to
simply ubntustudio-audio? And doing the same thng across the board.
That way, the dependencies are all there and if you want to install
say, ubuntustudio-art, then it will just say 'gnome gdm blah blah
already installed' and simply fill in the missing gaps?
Not sure if that would create horror stories if you use aptitude to
remove a meta package...
