The installer in 1.17 lists the extensions found by name, but does not select
any by default. There are checkboxes beside each one.
I'd like to see some of those checkboxes on by default (like ParserFunctions),
a description of the extension added (not just the name), and maybe allow us to
specify two extensions as performing the same function but as alternatives (old
wiki editor vs new wiki editor, but still as checkboxes so you can install more
than one option).
Being able to bundle a group of extensions into a single checkbox with 'expand' would be great too.
Most of this seems so-so usefull right now but as we bundle more extensions with the distro, or as packages like SMW+ include a lot, these would be great.
