I'm just worried about what happens when D7 comes out.
I don't think that the hook_profile_modules is very sensible for
install profile module requirements, and I fully intend on
introducing .info files for Drupal 7.
This would mean that install profile packaging will get broken during
the drupal 7 development, and will need to
be maintained, in tandem with the old mechanism.
