I actually tend to disagree, since IMHO the basic package should have
most if not all the bells and whistles enabled.  If you want to strip
things down, you can always recompile from source.  Disk space is
cheap these days, and any extremely-tight disk situation typically
indicates a clued user, who can recompile if needed.
