Yep, and it still is. In my view, it is really important to get the
installer -- and the install profiles -- into Drupal core. The
sooner, the better.
Ideally, Ber's command line tools would be able to re-use parts of
the installer (shared API). If that's not possible with the proposed
install system, we should massage it until it is possible. (We can
do this after the current system hit core. Incremental improvements
The point? We should be working on _one_ install system that can do
both, rather than having competing systems. So, Ber, please provide
a detailed review in the patch queue, or provide actual patches that
improve the proposed install system.
