Excellent point! I've heard (haven't we all "heard" something) that
if a user has to click more that a few times to get to a product then
you lose a percentage of them (don't remember the stats). Same goes
for search hits. If it's beyond the first few clicks (i.e. screens),
most will never see it. So if it's more than two clicks to install,
you will start losing people.
