Aleksej may have meant that to write a script that sets up a disk using
fdisk(8), disklabel(8), makefs(8), extracts sets with pax(1), runs
etcupdate(8) to complete some essential installation steps, modifies
some configuration files (e.g, sets rc_configured=YES in /etc/rc.conf)
and runs installboot(8) to configure the bootloader, is trivial.
I wouldn't call it trivial, but it's definitely possible.
