You did not understand me there. This needs clarification.

I NEVER said that commandline nistallation is the end-goal. NEVER. 

Commanline tools, or better: common install APIs, is what I think is the route 
to go. 

Then, *on top of that*, one can build a web-based installer. Bot *also* an apt 
package. Or a Plesk addon. Or ... and so on. IF we develop primarily a 
webbased installer, I ( stress that I) feel we are getting to the ultimate 
goal (easy Drupalinstallation) via the wrong road.
