Unless we define "standard" as the default modules plus info and
status then I disagree. Not only that, but the "markets" for each
system is widely different. A "standard" build for Solaris, for
example, might make sense to include extra modules since they
will be used on more powerful machines. Adding these to a build
for NeXT or A/UX make not make sense. I would guess that anyone
who takes the responsibility of making a build for an OS should
also have the responsibility of knowing what the "general market"
would want in those builds.
