I hope so too.. sysinstall is my personal enemy for about as long
as it exists.  Especially when used for installation.  It is started
instead of init, so you have no chance to exit it.  Of course it
likes to crash, often and loudly, when confronted with any operation
which it does not expect.. like actually installing from something
else than CDROM.  It is the pits.  I found the NetBSD scheme of
starting a sh with a lightweight sysinst program a lot more sensible
than that big fat buggy blob of one static C program which doesn't
leave any space left on the install disks.  If sushi is something
like sam (hpux) or smit (aix) with fully dynamically configurable
menu structures, then it can only be better than FreeBSD's sysinstall.
