Why isn't there a version of Mediawiki installer available with Visual Editor 'preinstalled'?

Hi

I would like to help set up a wiki for a charity and being a regular Wikipedia editor I know how useful Visual Editor is. However the instructions to install Visual Editor all kinds of complicated and scary compared to installed MediaWiki. Would it be possible/how much extra work would it be to providea version of the MediaWiki installer which included VE?

Thanks :)

The instructions are 'scary' because it is complicated. In a few years it might be simpler, but that is not likely any time soon, sorry.
