 Actually there is code in sysinst that tries to write out a shell script
 which you night expect to be able to rerun in order to replicate the
 However this is all fubar becase it forces sysinst to run programs
 instead of using system calls, and makes any decisions based on the
 filesystem (or user input) stupendously painfull.
