Because if I'm installing from remote sources, or if I'm at a datacenter, I 
really don't want to download 2x as many packages, install 2x as many 
packages, go through 2x as many scriptlets, just to remove 1/2 of them at the 
end of it all.  Seems pretty silly to me.  Are we going to get to the point 
where Anaconda just drops enough bits on the filesystem to reboot, launch 
pirut and continue the install from there?
