[wp-hackers] GSoC Proposal: Installation System Enhancements

What would be nice would be a way to install a selected theme+predefined set of plugins, for example for vertical market solutions like a real estate agent site or a restaurant site or something else.  

What I'm proposing is not to give the user a list to select from but instead give the people who provide those vertical solutions a way to provide their users with a simple installer that would first install both WordPress and then their package of theme+plugins without additional burden on the user.
