Rather than pointing fingers at each other, we should probably work on adding
this particular situation in to the F-11 test plan.  I'm sure the QA guys are
looking for some more work.  :)

I understand what you're trying to do, but here's my mindset at this point for
F-10 anaconda:

   - Does the issue prevent people from installing?
   - If yes, make a patch, test the hell out it, have the team review it,
     get it in.
   - If no, it's too late for F-10.

Really, I just hate the last minute changes that we've done to anaconda in the
past.  There's almost always something that slips in at the last minute and a
new failure shows up and we're playing the holy-crap-fix-it game at the very
end of the release cycle.  I just want to avoid that entirely by sticking with
the blocker/non-blocker concept, so I just consider this one non-blocker.
Installs still proceed.
