The main thing that is missing is an icon/button on the desktop, I guess.
Though of course Anaconda needs to provide a CLI executable (or a flag to
the liveinst one that is already shipped anyway) for it.

But that is exactly what I do not want. I want to be able to use the full
live environment as my rescue environment, e.g., the KDE Partition Manager
that is installed on the KDE Live image anyway.
Yeah I agree it would be nice to have both. So maybe it just needs a
separate icon that runs Anaconda rescue mode.
