 * Make the installer more flexible. Make it possible to choose KDE/GNOME/all educational packages/Debian default. (Waiting several hours installing Tjener+LTSP seems to scare away testers and developers).
 * Continue cleanup. What is left back in our d-e-packages that's not needed anymore? Strip down things to the necessary, we are not able to maintain more. What can and should be addressed in Debian?
 * Preconfigured LXDE by default as Thin-Client?
 * Preconfigured educational desktop (if chosen in the installer).
 * Make it possible to choose LTSP chroot arch (i386/amd64)
