Speaking of the installer...

How difficult would it be to be able to select a kernel for installation
if more than one kernel.${foo}.txz is provided on the install medium?

The use case I have in mind is where kernel.VT.txz is extracted to
/boot/kernel.VT (which I believe the loader menu already supports
multi-kernel), an alternate kernel can be chosen for booting and then
can subsequently be chosen as the installed kernel during the extract

This would actually cut down quite a bit on snapshot build times, since
right now I have to do a separate build for each kernel.
