I think the key word there is "does not yet *support*". Run setup
--help from a command prompt, and setup will output a list of its
command line options into setup.log.full. Play with running it using
them on a previously prepared local download directory, with
non-default packages included either by changing setup.ini to add
"Base" to their category or adding a dummy mirror directory with a
setup.ini having a dummy package that has category Base and requires
the other packages you want.
