Yeah, I know (and have done so :)

Indeed, and the problem here at hand concerns especially non-interactive
installations. At some point I hacked firstboot initscript to do
"run-parts /etc/firstboot.d" but that gets really silly when you're trying
to avoid the interactive firstboot step: first re-enable firstboot from
kickstart %post to make it run those firstboot.d scripts and then
re-disable firstboot from one of those scripts to prevent the interactive
firstboot to run.

Would be nice if such functionality would be included in the initscripts 
package, afterall it's just a couple of lines of shell script. I can 
make a patch if it has any chance of getting accepted?
