Of course, we don't want as many as parameters. Simply command lines
are absolutely better. But, it is impossible owing to complicated
systems. This is why you supply a lot of option commands.
I think that for most of beginners installation is a big barrier. If
in this stage they had a problem, they couldn't do anything. Mailing
archives could be a source for hints, but are too big and are
disorganized to find the answer for beginner. Illustrate just a few
examples for typical systems in home page is very helpful.
