I like "selections" but I don't like "prefab".  And, right now, I think that
Igor was telling me that you can't do something like:

Prefab Program Selections
  C Development
  X Desktop

Because setup.exe can't handle that.

So, it would have to be:

C Development Prefab Program Selection
X Desktop Prefab Program Selection

which is a little wordy.

I do think we want to convey that these are optional easy-to-use selections
which will pull in all of the programs required for a standard "use case"
(as they like to say where I work).

How about "standard selection"?

C Development Standard Selection
X Desktop Standard Selection

Bleah.  I don't know.  Maybe it just can't be properly conveyed without
all sorts of flashy gui balloons and help.
