I wanted to bring this up before, but held back. Would releasing parallel,
distinct, yet related editions of WordPress be a possibility? Downloading a
light-weight version of WordPress and hacking it is analogous to
from scratch, rather than getting comprehensive distributions like Fedora,
Mandrake or SuSE. At its core, all is the same.
This would likely be a support nightmare. If you do want a lightweight
version of WordPress, see LightPress.
That's what I'd imagined (support nightmare) and that's why I held back. I can
think of a few exceptions where the nature of software is different.
for example, is a Palm English-English dictionary which ships as 3 different
editions with varying database sizes. Since no alteration in code is involved,
very little can go wrong, and _yet_ there's a choice.
Regarding Matt's comment, he was quite right. The O/S analogy is poor
the big difference in scale.
