pirut isn't useful without graphics, and I don't ordinarily use graphics 
on machines I administer remotely.

I don't know what PK is.

The reason I said "first-run" is to ensure administrators know there's a 
decision to be made.

A commandline tool to enable/disable repos would allow administrators to 
apply the decisions in the kickstart's %post section.

That's way better than the grep I've been using. Thanks.

enablerepo/disablerepo (as distinct from --enablerepo/--disablerepo 
would complement these nicely.
