With subtags <param.../> wee may use next construct:
<package name="jed" .../>
<option name="withx" caption="With X" hint="Install X windows extension">
<description>Install xjed and other x files...</description>
<param _="--with-x" ifoption="withx"/>
Front end parse it and allow user to select option withx if have instaled
XWindows and send backend command
for instaling jed with Xwindows extension.
Backed found package definition and source (on local repository or global
repository on internet) and install it with x extension.
It's simple definition of optional instalation and profile will not be
simple order of commands.
