We've been round this. Base is for _base_ stuff only. Not 'useful'. Not
'nice'. Base. Stuff without which the shell won't initialize, and users
can't do anything.

Of course' it's not my call - it's the communities - but I see no reason
to start the slippery slope.

Setup needs 'profiles' for 'workstation', 'server' etc, but that doesn't
exist yet.
