I am sorry, George, I completely disagree. Someone seeking to install
TeX Live can reasonably be assumed to know a little about computer
typesetting and a little about using the operating system of his/her
choice; there is no /a priori/ evidence that he or she knows anything
more. Therefore, to expect such a user to locate, download and install
"a suitable downloader" is (IMHO) completelu unreasonable. A suitable
downloader should form an integral part of the TeX Live installer, and
automatically come therewith.
