Well, it's not really 'introducing' as the functionality is there, you just 
have to add your repo.  I hoped to get testing on this after F6 released, and 
we still can if you're doing network installs.  Same can continue through F7, 
we could even state that you could do this.  I don't want to put UI in the 
installer that we know would break if you're doing a CD install.  (UI being a 
checkbox to enable updates)
