Wonder if 2.6.x has "chassis type" detection to report "Notebook" like dmidecode does:

I'm talking out of ignorance, but after ample amount of beta releases, and at least 1 'Everything'-install installed for each platform, then wouldn't it be reasonable to assume that there would *never* be a "conflicting file" and the transaction set could be pre-constructed to save time?
