Uhmmmm let me try to decipher what a role is in your view, based on the
process you described.

1. A set of packages
2. A configuration mechanism to make a basic configuration of such
packages, including pre-requisites.
3. A UI (whether graphical or command line base doesn't matter) to drive
the process.

Is that all ?
