Third'eded   ;-)

I would love to see fastestmirror (along with skip-broken) automatically 
included, however we should probably mention in the release notes that 
if you share kickstart files between upstream and CentOS (as I do), you 
will receive a warning box on screen during the automated installing you 
that the "yum-fastestmirror" is not a recognised package "would you like 
to skip it and continue, or cancel the installation?", which breaks the 
un-attended nature of an un-attended install.

I still think it should be included, but mentioned in the release notes.
