Is it possible at all to find a sane default for _all_ kinds of systems?
Maybe we should, like Peter already proposed in the previous thread, define
different sets of defaults, for different usage profiles and/or amounts of
memory, among which the user can choose at install-time, and then sysinst
would install an apropriate /etc/sysctl.conf.  

The choices don't have to be many, but just distinct enough to get more
optimal defaults for different systems.  e.g. just himem vs lomem and
server vs workstation.  

What do you think?
