OK, my mistake,  there are exactly 2 existing install profiles, both
of which are translations. I had a look at the Czech one -- it's not
exactly complex -- there are no additions to the default profile other
than enabling the modules and importing the language.

Yep, not for discussing install profiles in general, I meant one for
talking about / building install profiles. There has been MUCH talk
about install profiles....and very few of them actually created.

As discussed....to do this right would mean writing packaging scripts, etc. etc.
