I don't understand your objection to generating a script which lists all
of the packages that you want to install.  Obviously you wouldn't expect
the user to do that.  You'd just create a .bat file to do this.

Alternately, maybe you could get away with just changing all of the
"requires: " in setup.ini for the packages that you are interested in to

This is not an insurmountable problem.  It just takes some scripting.
