as a thought how hard would it be to make It work for say a extras DVD?  say  
just before fc6 release  we snapshot extras, run createrepo on it and make a 
dvd iso,  or even cd isos  can we do that?  I guess for cds  you would have 
to do something similar to debian  and insert each cd/dvd at the start so 
that the repo metadata  can be read.  but then the install would offer all 
those packages.  dvd would be simpler  you dont need to worry about 
dependency order so much

It could  be a stepping stone  to having a web script for instance  that you 
could create your own iso  with what you want on it.

but right now  im thinking it would be nice to make an extras iso.  everyso 
often  i have to do an install in a location that has crappy internet 
connection.  and  it would be much simpler to do from a local media.  some  
parts of the world  it will really help
