why doesn't /root/anaconda-ks.cfg contain partition info?

  for the first time, i took a close look at the generated
/root/anaconda-ks.cfg file, and was surprised to notice that it
didn't contain the partition creation info.  here's the top part
of mine:

# Kickstart file automatically generated by anaconda.

lang en_US
langsupport --default en_US.iso885915 en_US.iso885915
keyboard us
mouse generic3ps/2 --device psaux
network --device eth0 --bootproto dhcp
rootpw --iscrypted
firewall --medium --dhcp
authconfig --enableshadow --enablemd5
timezone America/New_York
bootloader --append hdb=ide-scsi
# The following is the partition information you requested
# Note that any partitions you deleted are not expressed
# here so unless you clear all partitions first, this is
# not guaranteed to work
#clearpart --linux
#part / --fstype ext3 --onpart hda1
#part /7.3 --fstype ext2 --noformat --onpart hda7
#part /home --fstype ext3 --noformat --onpart hda5
#part /usr --fstype ext3 --onpart hda6
#part /win --fstype vfat --noformat --onpart hda2
#part /var --fstype ext3 --size=512
#part swap --size=512
#part /preserve --fstype ext3 --noformat --onpart hda3

  so where's the partition size info?  i would have assumed that the
whole point of this generated file would be to support creating another
host practically identical to this one.  it's kind of tough to do that
when you have no partition size info stored in the file.
