Yup - this is a general problem that applies to C++ code too. We have to
balance this with providing QGIS with a set of features that enables
people to get real work done in QGIS. I dont know an easy answer to this
but my feeling is that the default QGIS install should provide somewhat
more than it has now, but somewhat less than everything & the kitchen
sink. That said, your suggestion below seems worth a try.

Ok +1 for me I'm willing to give your suggestion above a try if others
