From http://www.pcworld.com/reviews/article/0,aid,118614,00.asp :

"Longtime Linux users will find the "include all -devel packages" option especially helpful: Selecting this option ensures that all the code libraries necessary to compile fresh software will be installed on the system, saving you the time and trouble of hunting them down yourself. Nifty."

I've read something about mac OS X having something similar.

Wouldn't this be something for the expert installation of ubuntu ? Maybe it could prevent some dependencies problems (for example when you are mixing warty with some hoary packages) ?
