I'm pretty sure it could do all that stuff two years ago too. Maybe you
had some trouble figuring it out. If you do again, then ask for help on
users@, don't give up - kickstart is definitely capable of doing all
these things, as Kamil says. You can include multiple repository lines,
for instance, and all those repositories will be used.
