3) I see no "post-install" uses on the new one. Sysinstall could be
used on an up-and-running system to do everything from adding a user
to changing a nameserver and more.
Another potential problem is that the new version of libdialog that
the new installer uses changes the way navigation is done: on Linux
and in the previous version on FreeBSD it's possible to press <Tab>
to change focus to the buttons and different UI elements. That
doesn't work any more.
It's a change from before, but a normalization with respect to most
Linux distributions, since we are now using the same dialog as, e.g.,
Debian and Ubuntu.
The Debian 188.8.131.52 installer appears to use the old navigation method,
and SuSE 11.4 seems to too.
