Note that the 5.1 is a lot different to the -current one (which also has
gained some bugs right now). I think the "go back and undo selections"
part only is hard for partitioning itself, and for everything mostly is
avaliable, sometimes via a slightly longer loop than "just one step back"
The sysinst UI is pretty much streamlined for very quick installs, if we
can make it even better (more userfriendly, error forgiving), the better. And
we should do it for the text version as well.

Heh, not sure - and others obviously disagree with me on details like this ;-)
