What am I refusing to look at? The complicated instructions?

I think the important point is that if it isn't part of the standard
setup, most ordinary people won't even go looking for a way to set up
multiple versions, they'll just assume it can't be done, or that it is
a complicated procedure. That is why it is so important that the
standard installer offers them a choice.

It is also worth noting that a lot of ordinary computer users will see
a set of instructions, and the moment it has more than two steps will
feel it is complicated, yet if the standard installer simply asks
yes/no type questions and does the grunt work, they'll be quite happy.

But for my money it is mostly about people being shown a way to do it
without looking for it, that will make them actually use it, whereas if
they have to go looking for it, they won't bother.

Or are you saying that the installer already works as I described? If
it does, fantastic! It would be huge, but it also was apparently never
announced, otherwise I'd have started installing dev versions as soon
as it was stable.
