I'm using minimal in the sense that the local.conf has few lines,
but results in a useful system for general dev exploration, or
provides a reasonable base to build from.

Thus the starting point ought to be:

* small statements about desired network topology
* list of enabled service (via enable_service, not ENABLED_SERVICES)
* service password settings

With nova you can do that. Not so with neutron, yet.

I recognize that the above is not going to fit all use cases, but
the users I'm trying to satisfy here are early explorers who haven't
got far enough along where they need to tweak all the knobs, they
just want to get started.

I don't use a bare minimum install anyone either, but knowing what
one is provides a good foundation to build upon.
