+1 on default as a list. TurboGears has its own setup program (based  
on ez_setup.py) for installing/upgrading setuptools and then  
installing the "right" TurboGears (where right could mean a version  
in testing with different dependencies and whatnot). By having a  
default set of extras, then "easy_install TurboGears" can still work  
for those that are savvy to easy_install.
