Sorry for the thread archaeology, I'm catching up on two weeks of -devel
after Beta crunch and travelling.

One angle on this that didn't get pointed out, I guess because anaconda
team apparently isn't reading, is that at least one person on the
anaconda team - I forget who - hates liveinst with a passion and has
been proposing forever to kill it and replace it with a choice on the
live image boot menu between 'boot a live desktop' and 'install' (which
would run anaconda in a locked-down environment, just like on the DVD /
netinst). If that plan were to actually happen it would kinda supersede
all the other suggestions, I think.

Brian, is the above actually likely to happen in any near-future
timeframe? Or is it just one of those 'wouldn't it be nice if...'
things?
