Well, it was also the default behavior for some time with the
pre-Sarge installer - I don't know why it was dropped (in the back of
my head I hear a little voice telling it was buggy or something, but
I've been taught not to listen to those little voices). I'd like to be
part of the standard install (of course, after answering a question,
as many people will not want to be silently reporting their data).
