FYI, so we're all on the same page here...

My efforts aren't going to be "around about D7 time".  If all goes  
according to plan (and all the current pledges of funding actually  
come through), there will be packaged install profiles on d.o in  
about a month or so.  I have every intention to support fully  
packaged D5 install profiles.  Of course, that doesn't rule out other  
install profile improvements once D7 development opens up.  But,  
people shouldn't consider this functionality something only for the  
distant future.
