I like the leaf idea, as long as each leaf is provided with a short
description as some of the names aren't immediately obvious.

If we get dependencies auto-selected and -deselected, this could work
out pretty well.

We should have a few sane groupings like "Desktop," "Workstation"
(desktop plus any extra development stuff) and "Server" as well as a
"Custom" where everything is manual.
