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
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.
