[CentOS] more kickstart - saving %pre decisions for %post

So speaking of things that do not work as advertised, my
--log=/some/log/file is also not working, it seems
In any case, here is what I tried.
In %pre I do this :
echo > /tmp/foobar <<FOOBAR
and then in %post I do :
if [ -f /tmp/foobar ]
cp /tmp/foobar /etc/foobar
[ ... bunch of stuff ... ]
# down here I manipulate all kinds of files in /etc and they
# are there in the booted image
So it seems that /tmp in %pre is not the same as /tmp in %post
Any further advice on this?
I suppose I could try mounting a network drive in %pre, copying the
file out there, then mounting it again in %post an copying it back.
But that is a lot of hackery if you ask me.
