Seems pretty reasonable over all.

For the windows installer, I imagine this working something like the
cygwin or ms office installer. There could be a screen listing all
the libraries and the installer itself comes in two flavors, either
contains only the minimum (and uses the network to grab any
additional) or the installer contains everything and lets the user
select which packages to install (defaulting to everything).
