For this one, there is now FileStore.has_file(path) method that allows 
to check whether file store has back up for a file pointed by an 
absolute path. This will allow you to proper detect that we actually 
changed hostname/archived /etc/sysconfig/network already -- either in 
server or client installation context.

Unlike all other methods, this one gives you nondestructive peeking of 
the file store state.
