I would like to see the ability to have available the option to download 
a preconfigured extension.

Take for example tt_products. It would be nice to have a t3d file 
exported from Franz,s site that matches each version(or just the 
latest)of the extension.  (this is actually possible somewhat)

Each of these t3d files would be preconfigured, with a prerequsite 
document, to import into any existing typo3 site as long as the site met 
the prerequisites. Such as "install the following extensions before 
installing the t3d file.
v.x.xx.xx   fh_library
v.x.xx.xx   table

for category functionality
v.x.xx.xx   mbi_products_categories
v.x.xx.xx   nsb_cat2menu

Then finally.
v.x.xx.xx   tt_products

Import the t3d file before checking these settings to verify functionality.

But this is probably a completely different topic.
