[Fwd: network step always skipped in kickstart.py]

I posted this to the anaconda list with echoing silence, so I was wondering if someone here could help me figure out exactly what was going on.  Why does anaconda *always* skip the network configuration step if kickstart is used?

I've built a rudimentary patch that works around the problem for my purposes, see below, but while that works with expected behaviour (leave out the network line, it should ask you to configure a network interface) that seems a little hacky, as it breaks down as soon as you have more than one interface...

The anaconda docs on the fedora wiki say "--bootproto=query" is the way to get kickstart to pop up the network configuration dialog.  (this does not work)

anaconda.spec mentions --bootproto=ask in anaconda 11.4, but it was pulled out shortly after, and obviously doesn't work.

Is this design intent, or something over-looked, or...
