deepak and i were just talking about this yesterday. we have it
noted in a trac ticket that while we'd like to constrain the size
of the default install, we'd like to make available a more
complete set of modules that represent easily pluggable add-on
devices (primarily USB devices: serial, bluetooth, tablets,
etc). one could picture an add-on RPM or "extra-modules".
unfortunately, no other (?) distro does this, so there's no
convenient packaging format to piggy-back on.
