This has been a hot topic; should the install system itself handle
things like populating content? Or should that be the responsibility of
a profile-specific setup module? I lean towards the latter: putting
site-specific setup behavior, or 'sample site' population, into modules.
They're better equipped to handle the task of wizard-style setup
screens, interaction with the rest of the drupal system, and so on.
