This is where preconfigured installs like CS or on Btyght come to play.
But more important: If someone has no budget, she will have administer Drupal 
herself, and thus will need to know technical things.

If I cannot afford an engineer to fix and maintain my car, I will need to 
learn how the engine works.

True. But renaming 'weight' to 'ordering' will not help. The concept we have 
currently is 1) hard to grok, and 2) very hard to get right in an UI. Above 
all this -again- is an interface problem.
