Yes, having it be a checkbox in the UI and on by default for network
installs is the new functionality I'd really like to see. If it doesn't work
for non-network installs at this point, it could be hidden, or greyed out
with explanatory text.

The minor other logic that would rationally go with this is the ability to
find the corresponding updates directory on a standard mirror layout for the
release to be installed, given the path to the main repo.
