Right. But some WILL NOT read the documentation and they WILL create a 
crapy system.
And then they WILL run to the forums. And guys like you WILL tell them 
to RTFM.
And they will tell their friends what a crapy system Gentoo is and what 
jerks these Gentoo users are.

Seriously give them a nice default system and tell them later in a nicer 
way to read how to extend the system.
