I assume we are talking about the patch that looks for "Official" in
.disk/info here, rather than just looking for the file itself...

That patch wouldn't necessarily have helped me; I want the option of
doing a network install, even if I happen to have forgotten that there
was an official CD in the drive.  Neither did it address the "please
pick an item from this list of one items" sillyness.  Also adding a new
file such as .installable to the image wouldn't have helped me if it's
presence completely disables the net install option.  I like the idea of
a new "shall I install from the CD" question though - that would have
have alerted me to the fact that I had a CD in the drive as well.
