Are you suggesting that we change the install experience for 4.13.0 and
older releases?  One advantage of having all of the steps in the ant

AIR) get a rough command-line equivalent.

I think what you want to do is just chain a few installs together as in
³Hey, you¹ve installed A, would you be interested in installing B² or do
you envision something more tightly integrated?  Teaching the installer to
chain might be useful, although again, what would we do for our Linux
