Right, but those claims (1 - being scriptable and 2 - not requiring utilities outside the base) are *both* not unique to bsdinstall and its predecessor (sysinstall) exhibited both those features long before bsdinstall.

We've been scripting sysinstall since 2006. Successfully, I might add (and yes, we plan to release a 9.0 scripted sysinstall image to "share the love").
