There isn't a way to run a live media graphical install and have

No code exists to do this, but from what I can read of the anaconda
code, it might be just about this simple:
$ git diff
diff --git a/pyanaconda/__init__.py b/pyanaconda/__init__.py
index ba4e3c5..759d30e 100644

Then you'd boot the cd with installmethod=rpm. Obviously an ugly hack,
and really anaconda would need some sort of UI for "I want to install
this system as I see it" versus "Give me list of packages to install"
Well, "git grep livecdInstall" shows other hits so there may be more
special casing, but anyways there's not really any *major* technical
difference between "standalone anaconda generated by lorax" and a
"regular live system with anaconda running as an app".
In this model, anaconda could actually be a "spin" living in
spin-kickstarts, except that lorax strips out far more than is possible
via RPM alone.
