for sure the installer should not be a complete configuration  tool - that 
would be a different beast (and it looks like pgAdmin will go there). But 
server logging is *vital*, as it's the only means to tell you what went 
wrong, and allows you to investigate. This will bite many new users, as 
they're used look at the eventlog. 
Thus my suggestion.
