You mean the easy steps where you take a default install with 3 ish
partitions, then predict the future needs for 7-8 partitions and then tweak
the journal or lack or, various mount flags, and partitioning ordering to
minimize seeks?

That's not _easy_ in my book, especially since the very act of doing so makes
it more likely that additional tweaks will be needed in the future.
