here's an idea - rather than having all this stuff in anaconda, why not
just install a 'workstation' or 'minimal' system. boot it up then run:
yum install  '*'

to your little hearts content.

Then you can clutter up your own system as much as you  want w/o having
to add confusing features and useless buttons into anaconda.
