Right, serial console installs are mainly used by you guys for testing,
virt installs, and big lab machines.  We almost never do one ourselves,
so an alpha test priority probably makes sense here.

Agreed as to the users.  I'm curious why you give this a different
priority from serial console, though.  It feels like serial and cmdline
have the same set of use cases and should be tested at the same level.

We still have telnet support for installs, but we've been trying to push
people towards using ssh for that instead.  I don't think we can get
away with throwing away the option yet.
