Yes. But only if they are mutually exclusive.
In fact there is a third type, not supported by the dialog: bigide.
So, maybe you want to implement the three mutually exclusive IDEs:
- minimal IDE
- big IDE with a standard set of packages
- custom IDE with your set of packages

The first idea of 'clean all' is to clean up files that were leftover
from renames and wrong paths. 
The second feature is to have a checkbox to quickly rebuild Lazarus
clean without checking all items.
