With Visual Studio Community being "free" except for the obvious DRM placeholder/s I'd like to see a open source competitor that takes it on on THAT level the way libre/open office does ms office.

Somehow installing eclipse and then all the available addons after the fact seems.... messy in comparison.

There are the packages, of course, but installing *everything* actually causes problems of its own: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=483982

zactly, I feel the need for a build that includes most things but is NOT unstable, a meta package of sorts

For what purpose? I think such an installation wouldn't be particularly useful given the UI clutter it would probably result in. The packages are a mature concept that is designed specifically to group likely-used features together. And it's almost trivial to add what you need.
I just don't see the purpose, and obviously neither does the EPP (Eclipse Packaging Project) or Oomph, as neither of them offer such an option.

We've talked about add an additional page that's essentially a shopping
list of additional things one can install. There are also .p2f files
for capturing what you want to install and Oomph has p2 tasks to
automatically install things. For example I have this in my user.setup
to always install vi.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<setup.p2:P2Task
xmi:version="2.0"
xmlns:xmi="http://www.omg.org/XMI"
xmlns:setup.p2="http://www.eclipse.org/oomph/setup/p2/1.0"
label="VI">
<requirement
name="com.mbartl.viplugin.eclipse.feature.group"
optional="true"/>
<repository
url="http://viplugin.com"/>
</setup.p2:P2Task>

With Oomph anyone can design their own package that has exactly what
they want in it.

In the end, deciding what should all be in an installation is up to the
user and there are a number of ways to make this relatively easy with
..p2f files or with Oomph...
