I think it would be very welcome for UbuntuStudio. To be honest, I think
the current way things are saves us from ourselves as almost all of the
apps in each meta are depends rather than recommends. So if things were
set up so the user could remove a meta, removing any one of the apps would
remove the whole meta too.

So I look forward to it, but also realize it would mean a lot of testing
to make sure things worked the way we intended.

A personal note. I think with the size of disks any more there is less
reason for removing a meta once installed than in the past. Installing
less in the first place still has it's place. uninstalling an app that
causes trouble with other software is different again. A fair number of
people remove pulse rather than learn how to use pulse and jack together
