Well, I'm the one driving this thread, and I just considered it because
I try and think through all the possible options when looking at
something like this. I wrote down my thoughts because Matthew's mail
seemed to prompt it. But my primary proposal is still the 'make anaconda
encourage user creation and drop i-s' thing. I don't want to start a
bunfight over g-i-s' mandatory account creation, but if someone else
wants to, it's no skin off my nose.
