I disagree here that it should all be under anaconda.  If Core is really small 
(no nedit, no KDE, no mysql, no postgresql, etc.) but then during firstboot I 
can add what I want from Extras.

And yes, there should be iso images of Extras cut when the Core is cut.  And 
yes, when Core goes "gold", there is a gold version of Extras.  Handling of 
updates for Extras is another consideration ... like Core (with base and 
updates) or just make it the latest (like development).
