...<continued my reply from the fedora patch>

where as to use the Windows desktop profile, an application needs to know
that they must provide a floppy disk containing an icon file in the BMP
format.

I'm wondering how we can avoid the need for applications to know about
these OS specific requirements.

I'm wondering if we should have one <install-script> that contains
data for all 3 files, instead of one <install-script> per file.

I'm also wondering if we can change the XML database, such that we don't
need to hardcode these filenames.

Can be better written as:

    gchar *output = g_strdup_printf("%s.ks", distro)



Considering all of this data, what if we were to change the <install-script>
XML syntax to allow multiple output files, and also provide metadata about
the external disk that needs to be provided, and the images (or other files)
within it.

eg something like:

  <install-script id='http://microsoft.com/windows/sif'>
    <profile>desktop</profile>

    <assets>
       <disk media='floppy'/>

       <resource type='image'/>
          <path>/user.bmp</path>
          <mime-type>image/bmp</mime-type>
          <width>64</width>
          <height>64</height>
       </image>
    </assets>

    <template filename='windows.sif'>
      <xsl:stylesheet>
        ....
      </xsl:stylesheet>
    </template>

    <template filename='windows.cmd'>
      <xsl:stylesheet>
        ....
      </xsl:stylesheet>
    </template>

    <template filename='windows.reg'>
      <xsl:stylesheet>
        ....
      </xsl:stylesheet>
    </template>
  </install-script>




  <install-script id='http://fedoraproject.org/kickstart'>
    <profile>desktop</profile>

    <assets>
       <disk media='harddisk'/>

       <resource type='image'/>
          <path>/user.png</path>
          <mime-type>image/png</mime-type>
          <width>128</width>
          <height>128</height>
       </image>
    </assets>

    <template filename='fedora.ks'>
      <xsl:stylesheet>
        ....
      </xsl:stylesheet>
    </template>
  </install-script>
