There can be a pointer from Cosmo too. Realistically people who go
to a download page will see alternative downloads as equally "part
of" the project. So if somebody goes to Cosmo download page and sees
a version of "full install", they'll think of it as part of or a
superset of cosmo. Another person might start at Scooby and see the
same pointer to "full install"
Separately from that argument, however, I don't quite see how cosmo-
only users will be frequently attracted to a full-install including
scooby. What am I missing? If it's because that's the only way to
truly easily install cosmo, we could have yet another download
option, for "easy-install cosmo" that didn't include Scooby.
