Please consider using SVN instead. A lot more users will be able to  
check out from there.

It looks like other people had a look at sysinstall, not at sade. As  
sysinstall is supposed to be used at installation time, and the intent  
for sade was to offer the functionality (or more) of the part of  
sysinstall which is useful after installation (and to prevent admins  
from using sysinstall after the installation to prevent some unwanted  
foot-shooting), I do not think that we need to think about a strong  
lock between sysinstall and sade.

If you can enhance sade beyond what sysinstall is able to do, I would  
say go ahead (note: I committed sade).
