This is the thinking that gets us to fully automated no choice tools
like the auto resizing usb images that I find extremely annoying
for *my* use cases but realize they are probably good in general.

I did not say that.

But when we are installing via sysinst, it is a good chance to make
sure we do not end up with unsafe systems (and if we do handle it
there, it never needs to be dealt with later again). Especially when
the fix is very easy (and could be auto-running the audiorng tool if
audio recording is available, but still needs to deal with machines
where there is none, as is the case for many oldish server type

Something else(tm) has to be done about cloning VMs and USB images, and maybe
it is only documentation that is required.
