My initial point was not about installation, it was about
post-installation configuration. We don't have a new tool for that yet.

Sorry, that's backwards. Garrett was right.
I'll have no objection to sysinstall being gone in 10.0-RELEASE after
it's lived with the deprecated tag in 9.x, but the new functionality
needs to be feature complete first. And for the record, yes I am aware
that this problem is why sysinstall has lived so long in the first place.
I should also point out for the record that I don't see anything
malicious in Nathan's actions, my only concern is that they are premature.
Nothin' ever doesn't change, but nothin' changes much.
