just did a quick research and google soc sponsored the finstaller in 2007 and
the bsdinstaller in 2005.
personally if i spent a lot of time on such a project i'd be expecting it to
get integrated into the base system. if not i'd get rather upset and would
probably switch to linux or opensolaris.
just my 2 cents.
