I'd look at the anaconda srpm instead -- the anaconda rpm contains
anaconda such that it can run in reconfig mode on reboot, and therefore
does contain all of the python, but it's also got all the compiled
bytecode, making it harder to grep.  anaconda-runtime contains the
various scripts for easily making your own boot images with
modifications to anaconda or the boot disks themselves.

Cheers,
