You understood my oblique sysinstall reference...  The 'can't do it in one release' is a red herring.  The current package system is by no means as good as sysinstall was before it was replaced.  The new one is much better and deserves a shot of 'replace in one' if it proves to be ready.  Anything contrary to that is just obstructionism.
