Anaconda install - conflicts over ifcfg-eth0

Executive version: I am preparing a package that provides an
ifcfg-eth0 file - and finding that Anaconda overwrites it...

If the package says %config{noreplace}
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 then anaconda installs the
file as an .rpmnew file. On the other hand, if I remove the
'{noreplace}' option, anaconda writes an .rpmorig file with its
settings _and also_ overwrites the ifcfg-eth0 file. The result is that
cmp ifcfg-eth0{,.rpmorig}  is true.

This looks to me like an anaconda bug :-/ Are there reasonable ways to
make this work? Can I tell anaconda that the network config used
during install is _not_ to be saved permanently?

As a workaround, I can overwrite the file on %post but that gets nastier...

Note! This package is not meant for Fedora proper, naturally. It is a
configuration package for the OLPC School Server, with (mostly) good
reasons to do the wild things it does :-)
