Yes please.

Bonus points for anaconda configuring a working agetty login if the install
console was serial. That is, run agetty using the same linespeed as the
install and add the serial device to securetty.

(last install I did, though it was rhel5, on a machine without VGA left me
with no way to login to the system after install (kickstart didn't add a
non-root user)
