 Interesting idea. A simple install.php file that downloads, decompresses,
 runs through setup, and voila, new site.

 The problem, of course, is supporting all the same methods that upgrading
 does. All that FTP filesystem code, for example. Looking at dotclear's
 installer, the support there is fairly rudimentary. You have to have
 fsockopen access as well as have the webserver be able to write files for
 it to work at all.
