I am going to disagree here. When someone is upset because "All" doesnt
install gvim, I would think they have a point. When someone is upset
because "Workstation" doesnt install gvim, I dont think they have a valid
point. Workstation is a custom set of choices, its going to not nescerly do
what you want... you fine tune such things yourself post fact. All -
implies all ... I dont really see anyway of it meaning anything else.
Ofcourse all meta-packages could state (sdesc/ldesc?) that they are custom
and may not be exactly what you want.
