Re: feature: do not eject DVD after media check

There might not be a second DVD - so can you provide an example as to
when this would be handy ?

Yes. Imagine the situation where you are performing a remote install. For some reason the only available media is CD/DVD dics and you have a buddy to cooperate with during the install. The person with physical access inserts the cd and powers up the machine. On the remote end you may control the installation (using serial console for example). There is no point ejecting the disc and your buddy going to reinsert it again.

As Bill Nottingham said it's another issue if the developers really want to put this code into Anaconda.
