Vaguely related... Something I've been wondering recently is whether
there'd be support for the idea of converting /etc/master.passwd,
/etc/passwd, /etc/rc.conf, and /etc/ssh/sshd_config in install media to
symlinks pointing into /tmp/bsdinstall_etc.

As of today I use mount_unionfs to modify these so I can fire up sshd
inside the installer image live environment, but it does seem like a missed
opportunity to make sshd available usefully out of the box, especially
since the bits are all there already - it's just not possible to make use
of them without some trickery because of the immutable configs.
