This block was only there because we needed to figure out where the stage2

UI or not.

With the guarantee that however you boot, you have the complete installation
environment, all this fragile code is no longer necessary.  We simply display
the askmethod UI only if the user has passed "askmethod".  Otherwise, it is
assumed they want to use the default Fedora repos.  repo= kind of bypasses
this assumption but it doesn't affect UI display.

Ack. Mighty minusing that can spawn even more removals/simplification in the installation method-specific code.
