[tex-live] TL default package install

I would like to propose that the default installation be "all" packages,
instead of our "recommended" subset.  Typical disks are huge these days.
Finding and installing packages later is a huge, huge, time-consuming
drag.  Especially with TL, where updates over the net are not supported.
(Obviously a problem in itself, but that's a separate issue.)

I'd also rename "recommended" to something else, "medium" or something.

Again, just changing the default, so if people want the smaller set,
they can still have it.
