So what you are describing is clearly a coordinated project with  
components that you've welded together for your environment.  Kindof  
like what they are doing, but with a different glue.

So why are you complaining that the project doesn't need to exist?   
Clearly your installation isn't out of the box....

(comments coming from someone who has developed their own project and  
uses his own glue and knows that it's not trivial and appreciates  
documentation work done by others....)
