there are many tasks one could add to sysinst that would be useful, but it's
all at the cost of usability.
For fetch-pkg-vulnerabilities to be useful in most scenarios the MTA must be
set up, thus network being set up, etc, a long ist of dependencies.
I would consider this fine-tuning rather than setup. And I think sysinst
should stay minimal, with only a selected set of actions to be performed
which are really needed for initial setup.
