Would it be feasible to fetch the current kernel from the 'net (if
possible/permitted) and kexec into it before proceeding with the install?
With liveUSB there's persistence, but is there a way to have a ramdisk
survive kexec for liveCD?
Heck, fetch the latest anaconda too, and get rid of some of the zero-day
problems we have that require respins now.
