Is this a question ? We must not confuse things here, if you say 'is
this the way an installer should be heading?' i say yes. If you mean if
this is the way Gentoo is heading, no. In my opinion the installer
should be aimed at the lower skill levels, because the higher skill
levels appreciate the power and hands-on feeling that the current
install process gives them.
