I am sure it could.  There are ways to do this and hide several of the 
questions that are asked along the way.  I haven't explored all what would be 
required to achieve that, but it is certainly reasonable thing to think 

As a first pass though I just wanted the simplest thing possible to allow 
people to get their feet wet with Evergreen.  In many respects, the first 
route would be to use the VMware images that Dan provides.  Then the second 
step would be to use my scripts to actually install the system.  Once they 
are comfortable with it, then tweaking the script would be required for a 
production environment.  

I was probably targeting more of those folks that were doing feasibility 
studies of Evergreen than anything else.
