Well, but anaconda makes some changes to the image after copying in
the OS, no? it could also do an "systemctl disable mdraid.service
--root=/installed/tree" or so if it knows that mdraid is not actually
The general argument against doing things like that in anaconda is that
it will change later and this email thread becomes "Why is anaconda
running systemctl disable mdraid.service after installing the OS"

Well, we addresses similar cases by placing README files or so in
those directories, so that people might notice if they are looking for
something there... i.e. /var/log/README is a similar case and
/etc/inittab too. I think we can do the same here too and make clear
that people need to install cronie first before these things work.
Alternatively. just drop the cron dropin dirs from the base image: if
i want to drop in a script in the dirs I should notice if I can't
because the dir doesn't actually exist.
