Amen. Having done my share of tweaking (some environtment-specific stuff, 
changing defaults and other little silly bits) to anaconda at work: breaking it 
is oh-so-easy and debugging stuff at install time is a) not exactly easy b) 
time consuming. My full sympathy for the change towards doing stuff post-
install time...
