When I was making my custom sysinst, I did my testing just in a xterm. I
didn't get all the different menus, but it should be easy enough to get
most of them by running it from a console (and capturing it).

I can agree with that.

(I am not sure why your message was CC'd to the other lists, but
tech-install list may be a good idea, since that is where some of the
sysinst new development has been recently discussed.)

Since most (or all) of the sysinst menus are in menuc(1) files, it seems
like there should be some trivial way to just display them.
