It's not used for very much.  See
b455a512ccf4bbb84e1ab0ba66c44b59537aa1d3.  We could probably come up
with another method to accomplish the same thing.  If the test cases are
written well enough, this should not be a problem.

I don't really have a hard rule for these situations.  In general, I
try to keep pykickstart using an older set of python features and just
correct issues as they are brought to my attention.  I do not test
master on RHEL6, but that could also be done.
