Yes, much of the anaconda build process is crufty - someone should have
been censured for calling shell scripts from a high level programming
language with excellent data structure support....

While unlikely to win any converts here, YAST is a much more technically
coherent solution with an excellent C++ framework - it's also recently
been open sourced ;)

Unfortunately, the renaming the package doesn't buy us anything.  We
have distro's for bastion-logos, gamut-logos, enchant-logos etc etc -
all with differently branded/logo'd installers.  buildinstall needs to
determine which of these we might be building simply from the RPM's
we've placed into the RPMS directory and generated the hdlist from,
hence using the %{PROVIDES} tag.

I guess we could try symbolically linking our *-logos to system-logos,
but in addition to being highly obtuse, I suspect something will vomit
