Would it make sense to include somewhere a note or button that says install
this package for some advanced settings? As a user who often desires more
customisability but is fairly non technical, I often don't know where to
turn to start further customising. This could be a way to balance not
having too many options but letting people know that they exist. A
potential downside to this is that people might start to expect the same
level of support and polish on the advanced settings as on the default.
