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.
