Was wondering if complete, reciprocal removal of a few programs as listed in filesystem.manifest after a fresh install, accomplished by transferring those entries to filesystem.manifest-remove, will result in unusual dependency (or other) problems with the finished installation.

In short, is using filesystem.manifest-remove during setup about the same as user removal via the Software Center applet after first boot? Are there any issues to be aware of when customizing the final package roster for an installation using this method?

Is there any usage info for this feature available out there?

Thanks for the help --
