So much for being "volunteer" deployment friendly, now you have to "fix
sugar" at the image creation time, patching out/in what you want in the
image, in place of just not installing certain functionality in the first
place. Are you suggesting that datastore, toolkit(s), base, be re-merged
into a single massive rpm? I think not, the control-panel rpm split is a
natural progression of this progressive thinking.

This take it or leave it attitude that is displayed here is the reason
myself and Dextrose(Activity Central) came into being part of the ecosystem
in the first place, for the needs of the deployment. We listened to what
the deployment wanted to do and worked towards that goal.

I guess that this is just another way to ensure further work is only done
by a sugarlabs/olpc associate.

Just my 3 cents,
