I could obviously do this by hand, but somewhere in TeX Live there must be a file or files that define its contents, and define how the selected options change when the Scheme is changed, but I can find neither of those.  Could someone familiar with the present GUI installer please tell me where that file or those files are to be found, and their names, please ?

AFAIU, all the information is in tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb. Lines `name
scheme-...' define schemes. tlpkg/TeXLive/TLPDB.pm has methods for
tlpdb files.

But maybe you had figured out this much yourself. I guess Norbert can come
up with more specifics.
