I don't understand your objection to generating a script which lists all
of the packages that you want to install. Obviously you wouldn't expect
the user to do that. You'd just create a .bat file to do this.
Alternately, maybe you could get away with just changing all of the
"requires: " in setup.ini for the packages that you are interested in to
This is not an insurmountable problem. It just takes some scripting.
