Some ideas:

1) Add an "advanced" cmdline option, and when this is not present:

We had 'expert' in the past. Everyone passed it, because, well, we're all
experts, aren't we? People would pass it just becuase they figured that
there might be something useful there, long after it was an option that
did anything.

That's true, and I remember hating seeing that on every single QA bug report
that would come in.  "You guys realize it's a no-op now, right?"

Just to continue the ideas though, I do think Hans has a point of dealing with
Fedora and RHEL as different products and the installation screens could
probably be different.  Would be nice if we could figure out if we should
display the advanced storage screens or not.

* Do not ask what sort of installation (workstation / development machine /
  server) to do, simply do a default install

The command line is the wrong place to do this; the right place to do
this is in the install class, probably. Especially if we want to move to
a more generic installer that can install an arbitrarly composed product.

With some more work to the installclass.
