Is it already known what's going to be part of Anaconda? Personally I
prefer no firstboot at all as it's causing a lot of troubles (we seen
a few before F17 release) and I like to see basic stuff settings in
Anaconda (with initial non-super user).

So I think - without knowing what's going to happen in Anaconda, it's
useless discussion right now. Maybe I missed this discussion, could
anybody from this team comment it?
