General direction of current sysinst [was: Re: Sysinst support for installing source sets]

I wonder about the general direction of sysinst. I have some time and would
like to help with some stuff, but I'm not really sure about the current goals.

On the one hand, there's a 6.0 release soon, on the other hand, there's a
(eventually) complete rebuild of sysinst.
The former one is imho the important case (I'd see the rework rather as a
complete restructuring). There are several open bug reports about sysinst
which are sometimes easy, sometimes impossible to fix before release
(assuming release is at some point in April).

What should and what can be done before 6.0 release? There were several
patches in the last days, what should be done besides them?
Will deeper modifications have enough time for testing?

Regards, Julian
