The intent of the thread, as solidified in the subject line, was a 
discussion about 4.8 or 5.0's approach to the install system. That 
doesn't invalidate the two things you mention, and neither does yours 
invalidate mine. They are not, however, in any way, related: yours is 
talking about improving the capabilities of existing features in the 
install code, and my thread was how best to abuse the install system and 
methodology for future versions, which will probably open up for commits 
in a month or so. The two threads are entirely unrelated.

It's equivalent to me saying "we really shouldn't think, or heck, even 
talk, about comments as nodes because we still have three bugs over here 
that need fixing!" While I appreciate your probably unstated goal to 
focus all efforts toward 4.7, I heartily admit to ignoring it entirely 
so that I can focus on an area *I* care about, as opposed to one I know 
nothing about, nor desire to.
