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. -- Mason Loring Bliss (( If I have not seen as far as others, it is because ma...@blisses.org )) giants were standing on my shoulders. - Hal Abelson
