At a glance, this part looks reasonable.  Need to fix up %include so
that it doesn't depend on the working directory.  But that looks pretty
trivial -- we just need to subclass KickstartParser and override
readKickstart() with a method that finds the file.  Otherwise, people
will hit what svahl did.

Patches to the actual creator code to fedora-livecd-list if you don't
mind so that I can review them there.  I don't necessarily disagree with
them, but it becomes a bit easier to review them more as specific
patches on the list.
