Thinking of it as 'modes' is more kind of a tool for debugging / QA, so
far as the 'UI experience' goes, it is actually meant to 'look' more the
way you thought of it ('how much assistance am I going to require'). But
for QA / dev purposes, it's most helpful to keep a sort of mental map of
all the possible workflows / modes in anaconda, and understand that the
whole partitioning step is kind of a mini-wizard mode with two major
branches ('guided' and 'custom').
