Great. It's probably a bit late for Beta, but it would be awesome if we
could get it to behave as intended for final: hide unnecessary functions
and don't run unless needed (so in practice it'd only ever run to show
the user creation spoke). I guess that leaves the 'welcome / EULA'
question open - my preference would be just to ditch that at least for
non-OEM installs unless there's some kind of legal requirement for it (I
don't think there is)...
