The problem I have with this is that we currently do not ask questions
after the package selection screen now (ignoring firstboot) so that's
sort of the point where you are done interacting with anaconda.

For some reason, a lot of people really like to hit "Next" on the
package selection screen, then walk off while anaconda grinds through
dep checking and starts installing.  They'll be annoyed if they wander
off only to find that there's another question in the middle of two
really long automatic processes.
