sysinstall had (at least) 2 primary purposes, installation, and
post-install system configuration. The new installer is a good step
towards the first goal, but we currently have nothing to fulfill the
second role. For that reason I think this step is premature.

One could also make the case that this is exactly the kind of disruptive
change that the release engineer asked us not to do until the release is
done, but I'll leave that to them to deal with. :)
