No, actually, getting it working in a fashion that could be considered
sane once you start taking into account multilib package installation is
ugly.  And the weirdo things with people getting themselves into bizarre
states because they decided they would be cute and try to deselect
package X which they really needed.

It basically needed a complete rewrite to work with some of the changed
functionality in other places in the installer and it was decided that
it was far more generally useful to do that rewriting for
redhat-config-packages where you're actually going to be able to use it
more than once.
