And as esammer already pointed out, this allows for reuse of the backend
in both attended and unattended installs.  So, the interactivity is in
the frontend, the backend's responsibility is to perform an install
based on an install profile (what to do), and an arch profile (how to do
it), the frontend just gets an install profile together for the backend
to use, and optionally gathers status information from the backend as it
performs the install.
