I agree.
But may be we could do a wizard on wich every body could contribute to 
add plugins that configure ASU according to user preferences ?
It could configure keyboard, gsm multiplexer, sound, gesture ... install 
browser, terminal, ...
it could be like "easybuntu" ...

But having to repeat after each upgrade all the customisation process is 
Have sombeody already done something like this ?
