This assertion is not true. The installer tries to guess the user's  
default paper size using exactly the same algorithm that Gerben  
tries, and reconfigures. This has been the default behavior of MacTeX  
from the beginning a year ago.

Sometimes the guess may fail, as one of the initial dialogs reports.
