Agreed.  It would be *especially* cool if the installer didn't abort
entirely if, for example, a piece of required information was missing
(for example, if someone forgot to put in the machine's DNS domain
name).  Instead, it would be nice if the installer paused to collect
the information, and then resumed with the unattended installation.

I'd say that's second priority to getting an unattended installation
working, however.
