 So the way "yum fs filter" works is to change the yum configuration for
tsflags and override_install_langs.
 If you specify --installroot when running the filter command then yum
should write the new yum.conf within the installroot. Then when you run
the next installroot command, to actually install, it will pickup those
configurations and dtrt.
 You can also use --setopt to set them too, or .conf.blah if you are
using the API.
