Perhaps this decision could be automated by running benchmarks at
install time? X server performance (time to map a window, client-server
round-trip time, colour depth and screen resolution); amount of RAM (can
libgtop find this out?); CPU performance; filesystem performance in
$HOME. Different versions of documentation could be installed to match
the look and feel chosen by/for the user (eg if icons in menus have been
switched off to save RAM, screenshots should not show icons in menus).
