Sysinstall: Write the FreeBSD version at the top of the display

I was browsing the list of projects and ideas and stumbled upon one
that's rather simple and which would have been useful in the past:
Write the FreeBSD version at the top of the display (or somewhere
similar visible) - so lazy users know what they are installing
(version: release, stable, snapshot + arch: i386, amd64, etc) even
when the CD is unlabeled.
I'm changing the title of the Main menu using sysctlbyname to:
"FreeBSD <kern.osrelease> <hw.machine_arch> - sysinstall Main Menu"
The result would be:
"FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT i386 - sysinstall Main Menu"
Screenshot of the result: http://img55.imageshack.us/img55/980/sysintall17vv.png
If this is what is pretended I'll post the patch.
